miruko

Don’t you think the Miruko robot is creepy? This wearable eyeball-shaped cyber lifeform comes with an integrated camera and Wi-Fi connectivity, helping one augment one’s perception by sensing and reacting to objects which normally cannot be seen with the naked eye. Wait a minute here – does this mean we will gain what some people called the third eye, where one is able to see the supernatural world? Apparently not, but it does open up a whole new world of possibilities as the Miruko can be used as part of an interface for a virtual monster-hunting game that is played out in a real-world environment. The Miruko is worn on the player’s sleeve where the mechanical eyeball will roll around its socket and lock onto the virtual monster’s location before you decide on the next course of action. Sounds fun, eh?
