Tricking your mind into believing that something you are seeing is real can be a tough task but these Substitutional reality system developed by Japanese Laboratory for Adaptive Intelligence at the RIKEN Brain Science Institute manage this very feat. A perfect amalgamation of performance art and perceived reality puts forth a visual effect that is very close to reality and in fact trick the mind into believing that everything you are seeing is actually there in reality. Dubbed as Mirage project these uber cool glasses provide a simulation of the flow of time travel as the user is shown a mix of live video recordings from past and present.

Once the head gear is put onto to the wearer there is no restriction what so ever to look around and the system adjusts the visual output based on this movement with the help of pre-recorded scenes that are mapped and introduced in a visual exchange. Mirage augmented substitutional reality performance system surely paves way for futuristic augmented reality interfaces and the start is truly promising.
