This project is a conjecture of the future development trend of the virtual reality. In many sci-fi films we see a lot of new technology products, but often these are out of context and not a true reflection of the path of technological innovation. The popular pursuit and obsession with "future technology" can be exploitative, wasteful and destructive. This project examines alternate narratives for technological development by examining and speculating on a low-end market for VR.
