Description

"EMOTIONS ARE LIKE A VIRUS, a common cold...disrupting the flow of logic in the mind." Daniel reminds himself. Dan's work involves creating commercially viable AR solutions. The recession and an explosion of data-cops is drying out his streams of income. He turns to close friend, Krish, a researcher in Artificial Intelligence, in the hope that they can come up with ideas for the Entertainment market. After her father passes away, his girlfriend, Maya and her family return to their homeland. Dan and Maya continue their relationship via Dirrogates (Digital Surrogates), simulating human touch through haptics. Krish gets a job at the prestigious A.I.R.I. Using AIRI's lab and under guidance from Prof. Kumar; Krish's mentor, they create an advanced visor with Augmented Intelligence built in. They dub it "Wizer." A Board member at AIRI sees potential in the Wizer other than what Dan and Krish have in mind. At a test in a nightclub, things go wrong... Insight: memorieswithmaya.com / dirrogate.comshow more
