Whale watching is a multi-billion dollar industry. In an age where everything is becoming pixelated and digitized, it stands to reason someone might come along and gift the world with a VR glimpse into the whale world. There is already a blue whale game out there, but I don’t recommend playing it if you value your life. Augmented reality has also already made its way into our daily lives a la Pokemon GO and those obnoxious Snapchat filters. Chinese girls have been real-time photoshopping their faces into porcelain dolls or wide-eyed cartoon girls with in-app algorithms for years. What I’m trying to tell you is that the time will come when you can’t escape it. You’ll be lost in a world that doesn’t quite seem right. Look over here at Clifford and me. We used to happily swim around text messages, and now we’re stuck in Thailand. Whale, isn’t this strange. How did we get here, Sara? This isn’t a text message, Clifford—We’re lost. [Mychaelangelo Norkus]
