The following text is repeated cyclically during a demonstration of the helmets: Given to us in our sensations, virtual reality has made our life wonderful and beautiful. We invite you to the harsh world of real reality. In order to make this incredible voyage, you will need a little skill and AVH-1. Anti-virtual helmet 1 limits the field of vision, thereby depriving the visuonaut of the presence effect, i.e. it allows him to look at the world as if from the outside. Having familiarized oneself a little with the unusual situation, one can proceed to a fuller immersion in reality. It’s tie to try on AVH-2. This simple device allows one to look simultaneously forward and backward when moving in space for the world is multi-dimensional. Not difficult enough? Then it’s time to look at reality through the eyes of a fish. AVH-4, while sacrificing the binocularity of vision, widens the viewing angle of the visuonaut to 270 degrees. Do you feel in your element in the real reality? This means you are a capable, talented visuonaut and you will now definitely need AVH-3, AVH-5, and AVH-5.1.
But do not get carried away! Remember, real reality is not to be trifled with!
