Perhaps in the future, our realities may not be what they seem.
8bitfuture:

New cloaking device hides events in time.
Researchers at Cornell University have created  a machine capable of ‘time cloaking’, or hiding a complete event from an observer. Using a electro-optic modulator to first compress the light in time on one side of the event, and a similar machine to decompress light on the other side, a short gap in time is able to be completely hidden.
To the observer watching from behind the second lens, time appears undistorted, as if the event never happened.
The device is currently capable of hiding an event of 110 nanoseconds long, with the researchers predicting that up to 120 microseconds should be possible with the current generation device.

An interesting case of Virtual Space vs Real Space: Numerous virtual pavilions by art collectives such as Manifest.AR have been placed around the gardens during the 54th Venice Biennale.  This intriguing app called “Battling Pavilions,” built for the Layar browser, allows users visiting the Giardini to delete impinging pavilions via their iPhone.  Three public screens around Venice will show live updates on the battle, including the score of pavilions deleted versus pavilions left standing. Hat tip to Bruce Sterling for the video!

What if we could find out what all our neighbors pay in rent? What if we could say what businesses we want in these vacant storefronts? What if we could learn about people’s experiences and stories with particular buildings? What if we could use public space to share and learn what matters most to the people around us?
