VR Haptic Wearable + VR film Dark Matter Dark Energy V1.2

It is 2030.We have managed to find a way to see more than just 5% of our reality. We have now penetrated the shroud of mystery of dark matter and dark energy that make up around 95% of our reality; and harness it to create transcendental communication. This garment of 2030 allows us to teleport ourselves into each other across time and space to different degrees by mutual consent to create a pure spiritual connection undistorted and untarnished by social constructs. This garment facilitates and supports us to be emotionally naked with each other. Social media has finally become soulful media.

 

 

To create a more immersive experience of this highly abstract cosmic subject we have devised 2 wearables which can be worn independently or combined as an integrated experience with the VR film.
