Penny For Your Thoughts

Post by lbonanomi » Fri Mar 09, 2012 4:48 am

Jaimee slumped in a departure lounge with her husband, viewing her antique iPhone’s augmented reality display. Fluff from a news ticker: tenth anniversary of the first AR virus. She smiled.

The younger her needed only four hours to go from smug new iPhone owner to infectee. It was an insidious prank, posting her sub-vocal monologues as an invisible-to-her thought balloon over her head.

Thousands were outed and dozens murdered when voices in their heads started floating over them. Canada had actually rioted.

Jaimee’s last viewable thought: “wow, he’s sexy” as the tech disinfected her phone. It broke the ice nicely.
Go 'pods.

I love this.
Ever read 'Daemon' by Daniel Suarez? Aside from being a great book, it makes great use of AR.

Also, I approve of referring to a geek as sexy. :wink:

It's only harassment if you don't like it.
It's a head crime.
So you need the app to stay legal.

This is logical.
