Now I’m watching a movie trailer. All around of me are blank seats. The projector is far away from me, the sound quality is so good … ooohhh my god…. It is just unbelievable. Actually, no… I’m not in a movie theater, I’m on a train & just reached my destination then I took off my helmet and start walking.

Not only that, I’ve been in an aquarium on the couch, someone’s quiet apartment listening to music while lying in bed. Dare I walk around the solar system while sitting on a public park bench?
