A man created a short film that shows what a virtual-reality future might look like -- and it's terrifying

Google Glass may have been a dud (for now, at least), but there’s no doubt that we’re headed toward a world where virtual reality is the norm — for better or worse.

Keiichi 
Matsuda is a filmmaker, and he created a short movie that imagines the terrifying, augmented world that technology run amok could bring. “Hyper-Reality” is
 an eerily cheerily dystopian story — like a little mini-episode of “Black Mirror.”

Matsuda intends for the short to be one part of a larger, interconnected film set in this creepy near-future world. Check out “Hyper-Reality” below.
