In the re-purposed lobby of Animus Corporations: Tokyo, Thomas Newcastle rises from beneath a chrome ebony plated stage circle with a cloud of theatrical smoke offset by strobing silver lights-
"Since the beginning we've tried to be the next step; The creators of items which you hope to see ten years from now, today. We're confident we've developed some items that you will agree meet that standard. Ladies and gentleman I bring you this months wave of new Animus Products."
This model is wearing what we call AnimNation. It is a device not rivaling, but flat out beating the competition proposed by by viewgle and PlayCenter, even Macrosoft. It's design does appear to be bulky for the average person but with good reason. When this headgear is worn you do not just see a vision of the internet- you delve directly into it. With our brain wave reading software and sensor hardware, it is now possible to place you as realistically into the digital universe as it is this room.
We call it AnimNation because it comes with it's own built in environment. Each begins with a basic grid work pattern and tutorial on making personalized additions as you would to a home or social sharing network page. These homes will have full customization and will not abide by the laws of physics if user X desires. Though of course they will not be free.
we have recently begun developing our own personal version of the internet that will be open to an exclusive person or persons throughout the world who are willing to pay top dollar for the luxury of, for the first time, full internet security and privacy. It will be able to access the usual internet and retrieve information but will in the same way an astronaut rides into space in a rocket; The user would be shielded from any outside atmosphere while still being able to view the surroundings.

"Here we have the first fully functioning combination of organic tissue and metallic alloys. We used a mixture of micro-lattice metal and self sustaining cellular growth hormones, then roped them together with a center of an Animus Corporations patented Quantum computing formula. Thanks to this Quantum nerve, we actually didn't build this device. In four months, It built itself. If, we can find a way to expedite the growth process this could be the potential future of surgical procedures,and without a doubt, will be the future of prosthetic as we know it. But just to be clear, the name is still a work in progress." He smiles and the crowd gives a soft chuckle.
Clapping two hands together, "Esteemed colleagues visitors, associated members of the press, this is just day one of our four day expo unveiling. Please, enjoy your stay within the four surrounding hotels in the area and return tomorrow as we go even deeper into our newest designs yet to come. Thank you"
