Meet P.R.O.V.E. (Predicting Robot Observing Various Emotions) the first emotion predicting robot in history. Some people think science is becoming too advanced for its own good. Some people think it hasn’t gone far enough. I say try P.R.O.V.E. and then we’ll talk.
Have you ever been so tired that you just can’t decide what to watch on TV but you know you want to watch something? The is exactly what P.R.O.V.E. was designed for! With a series of mathematic equations, P.R.O.V.E. will know the perfect thing to put on before you will. All you have to do is sit back and let P.R.O.V.E. pick the perfect entertainment selection for your various moods.
Have you ever hosted a party and just couldn’t find the right music to set the mood? With P.R.O.V.E. that will never happen again!
P.R.O.V.E. is the story of just how amazing it would be to have a robot that was able to deduce exactly what you needed to see/watch/hear when you are at your most indecisive. Never again would you be sucked into Cake Boss marathons because you just couldn’t decide which movie to put on. You may say evolving machines will backfire, I say bring on the future!
The Biological Clock
That is exactly what science is proposing to do. By 2020, it is estimated that 1/2 the population will have installed their Biological Clock. The Biological Clock is a scientific advancement that measures a person’s path to destiny and gives you the exact time it will take to meet your soul mate. Once the Biological Clock is installed all you have to do is wait for the timer to go off and sometime in the next 24 hours you will meet your soul mate. As soon as you lock eyes with the person you are meant to spend eternity with, the Biological Clock of both people will beep leaving you with the person you’ve been waiting your entire life to meet. It is that simple!
The Biological Clock is the story of one world where the guesswork is taken out of love and replaced with science. Who wouldn’t want to live in a world of absolute certainty? If you knew that in 255 days, 13 hours, 06 minutes, 51 seconds and 415 milliseconds you would meet your soul mate- how would you spend that time waiting?
The To Save My Life Clause
Jonathan Safran Foer once said “we could imagine all sorts of universes like this one, but this is the one that happened”
What if this wasn’t the one that happened? What if we lived in a world where the hyperbole we all speak was taken to a literal sense? What if when you said “I’m was so tired I slept for a week” you actually slept for a week? No longer were words just meaningless expressions to seem interesting. What if everything you spoke was a reflection of the reality you knew? What then?
Daniel Pigg was just a man living in our world. That is until he discovered a portal into another world. A world where hyperbole didn’t exist and words had the power to be reality. A world much like this one, only truer. Daniel thought this new world was a Utopia founded in the truest of all truth. It took some getting used to but Daniel acclimated to this new life of truth over exaggeration. Then Daniel, and to be fair he is from our world and old habits die hard, said to a co-worker “I couldn’t sleep to save my life last night”.
Those nine words would forever change his life. Join Daniel as he discovers a new world and is suddenly forced to sleep or be killed.
The To Save My Life Clause is the story of one man who thought he found his happy ending only to find himself in a predicament he never would have been in in his own reality. Will Daniel be able to fall asleep when his life is on the line? Or will the gun to his head keep him awake for the last time? Part sci-fi, part thriller- this is one story you won’t be able to put down to save your life.
P.S. If you’ve never seen the sci-fi classic* please stop blogging and watch immediately and then answer my question… How weird would it be if life were like Gattaca and we as a human race were all genetically altered to be the best us we can be and if those people conceived in “free love” were considered the outcasts? So crazy, right?
*Classic is a term being used loosely.
P.P.S. Who isn’t in the movie Gattaca?
P.P.P.S. Why am I watching Gattaca right now? Oh, right- ’cause it’s awesome. Carry on.
The Human Mood Ring
After The Great Acid Rain of 2032, human beings were changed down to their DNA. Not only were third nipples and giant heads common but their mood was somehow reflected in their skin color. At first chaos was the new norm, people didn’t know why others were blue and then red and green and red again. The more they didn’t understand the redder they would get, causing a panic and ridiculously long wait times at the doctor. No one knew quite how to react until Charlie came along. At the tender age of nine, Charlie realized that it was emotions that were causing people to change colors just like he saw The Hulk change into a green monster when he got angry. Suddenly people everywhere understood everyone else. Turns out when you see someone who is blue, it’s a whole lot easier to be careful with their emotions and avoid the way too easy Smurf joke. And when someone is red, it is best to go to your room and let your dad calm down after seeing your less than stellar report card. Women were no longer the enigma men thought they were. Conversely, women finally would know how their man was feeling. Weirdly, it took a global disaster to bring the human race together. I guess that isn’t weird at all but what generally happens. Disaster tends to bring the best out of people, for a little while at least.
The Human Mood Ring is the story of how the world responds to being aware of everyone else’s emotions. Will the clarity of the situation eventually become annoying? How do you ignore your mother’s annoyance when it is literally on her face?
There is a moment in everyone’s life where one decision splits your life into parallel universes. You’ve seen it in movies- You take the blue pill – the story ends, you wake up in your bed and believe whatever you want to believe. You take the red pill – you stay in Wonderland and I show you how deep the rabbit-hole goes. You miss a train and come home late to everything normal. You make the train and you’re early to catch your bastard of a husband cheating.
Yes, you’ve seen it in movies. Thing is: these choices aren’t fictional. There is always a single moment in every life that will alter their universe. One single event that will set their world in motion on a path meanwhile creating a separate universe with an entirely different outcome. Only thing is, we never know when that moment will strike. Did me making coffee at home this morning instead of going to Starbucks mean alternate universe me met her soul mate while this universe me laid in bed with her cat? Would you even want to know the exact moment? Scientist Dr. Charles Holm out of UCLA is creating a device that will allow humans to know the moment that everything in life will change. And for a price (few can afford) you can see what alternate universe your unchosen choice will produce.
Alternate You is a tale as old as time: given the choice would you choose ignorance or knowledge? Red or blue?
Head Full of Doubt
There’s a universe, not unlike your own where people are more transparent. Literally. You can see inside people and more importantly, see what they are thinking. So what happens when you have a million dollar idea that everyone can see? That’s exactly what Thomas Goodwin is about to find out.
Head Full of Doubt is the sci-fi thriller about one man racing to the patent office before it closes and before his neighbors and everyone on the bus and all those people in the grocery store line and that one mailman beat him there. Will Tom strike it rich or will he fall short like everyone can see he thinks he will?
