The platform wherein he’s created “Strange Beasts” on offers a contemporary UI with an infinite selection in customization.

Weber then provides credit score to what he calls “Nano Retina Technology” which tremendous imposes computer graphic imagery over real-world objects by projecting a digital light-field into your eyes. However quickly after this recap, a darkish veil begins to gloom over Weber that portrays the risks of meshing the true and virtual worlds collectively (like an episode out of “Black Mirror”).
By way of his perspective, we see his daughter, Anna, taking part in round together with her personal virtual pet named Blooby. However we quickly study that Anna is only a figment of his creativeness which was super-imposed by way of NRT.
