Infinite Reality is the straight dope on what is and isn’t happening to us right now, from two of the only scientists working on the boundaries between real life and its virtual extensions.” —Douglas Rushkoff, author of Program or Be Programmed How achievable are the virtual experiences seen in The Matrix, Tron , and James Cameron’s Avatar ?
