The Future of Augmented Reality. Minus the Nipples.

Yesterday morning I decided to record my Blue Mars Mobile Avatar in various settings throughout the day. The idea came as I was stopping at a grocery story on my way into work, so I launched the program and logged in. To my surprise and delight there was a glitch in the software and my avatar rezzed with no shirt.

Now as far as I know, nudity is not allowed in Blue Mars Mobile. You can't delete your last shirt or pants layer. The best you can do is replace it with something equivalent to tan pasties or a g-string that doesn't blend very well with the underlying skin. But as you'll see in the video, it looks like the nipple-less skin layer was actually exposed.

I took this as a miraculous event and stealthily recorded throughout my shopping trip. It was a bit rushed and tense, since if someone glanced over my shoulder it might look like I was watching porn.

"But I was making an avant-garde video!"

"Tell it to the judge."

I made it out undiscovered. Unfortunately, I couldn't recreate the bug later in the day so I couldn't shoot any more topless video. So here's a very short video trailer I put together for the longer version that never was.

Would have been accepted at Burning Life I guess... nipples are basically evil.
