[Welcome to the Sci-Fi Lunch Break, where we'll be occasionally supplying you with a cool bit of audio/visual goodness to break up the monotony of the work day. You bring the turkey on rye, we'll bring you something out of this world to watch while you eat it.]

We all spend nearly 24 hours a day within arms reach of the information superhighway, but imagine what life would be like if you had the Internet piped right into your brain and everything around you was designed to spring to virtual life at your command. Don't worry if you can't picture life on the precipice of the singularity, though, because someone has gone ahead and done it for you with this conceptual demo of an augmented reality future.

From Keiichi Matsuda's Vimeo page:" The latter half of the 20th century saw the built environment merged with media space, and architecture taking on new roles related to branding, image and consumerism. Augmented reality may recontextualise the functions of consumerism and architecture, and change in the way in which we operate within it. "

Enjoy. [Via @slashfilm]
