Characters Sirena Culmination

These are the detailed description of the two characters in the game.

  • Duma – Our protagonist, a 20 year-old mermaid born in the Lost City of Erdia. Due to her strict parents, she wasn’t allowed to venture outside the city but she loves the stories of the outside. Her curiosity gets the best of her and she sneaks out of the city to go on an adventure!
  • Ares – The Former King of Erdia, also known as the King of Misfortune. His string of horrible luck always dragged others with him, causing catastrophe everywhere he would go. Ares is the reason the city is sealed up and the cause of everything else you spot throughout Duma’s adventure.

Anime Sword Art Online

Sword Art Online

-Brief description of the show

The description of the show is that you follow the main protagonist named Kirito and this VR game has finally been released called Sword Art Online. Many citizens around the world purchased the game and were able to log in seamlessly.  After a while of everybody playing the game, some people are ready to call it quits for the day but the logout button isn’t there. A strange entity tells everyone in the game that they are forced to stay logged into the game until somebody beats the game. Everyone’s avatar comes to life and looks like how they look in real life. If they are killed in the game, they are killed in real life. Also, if someone were to remove it in real life, a shock will be sent straight to the brain and the user will be killed. 

A game of life or death, who will survive this fantasy world?

-What XR apparatus do they use?

The XR apparatus they use is Virtual Reality called NerveGear created by Argus.

-Who uses it and for what purpose?

The people that use it are citizens willing to play NerveGear where they are put into this sleep and have full control of their avatar once they’re in this virtual world. The sole purpose is for entertainment but as other games were created overtime, the military ended up using it for training.

-How does it work?

It works by completely controlling the player’s consciousness by redirecting the signals the brain sends to the body and sending its own waves to stimulate the five senses.

-How is it designed?

It has a single interface that covers a player’s whole head and face.

Overtime, the 2nd generation, which was a lot safer, was released to the public called AmuSphere.

-How can it be hacked?

There were hacks that happened in the story, where it wasn’t explained how they were able to access it but they were able to change a lot of the sliders of their character.

-Other shows that use similar tech?

Other shows that use this technology are Log Horizon, BOFURI: I Don’t Want to Get Hurt, so I’ll Max Out My Defense, and Overlord.

-How would you improve it?

I wouldn’t improve its functionality because over time, the technology used to produce this functionality is phenomenal and I wish it were real. However, if I were to improve it, I’d make it look much more realistic looking. 

-Does it exist in real life?

No, it doesn’t exist in real life but it’s similar to the concept of Virtual Reality but we are not there yet. Also, they released a movie as well that dealt with Augmented Reality and it looked like an ear piece.
-Prepare a video where we see it in action (no more than 5min)

The Link on the bottom has pictures to showcase everything.

Technological Misuse

A technological misuse is the airdrop feature in Apple products. It is used to send personal messages seamlessly in less that a few taps on the screen, however, there are people that use it differently. If you have your airdrop available to the public, random strangers will send you pictures of unpleasing things or even messages. Another technological misuse is flash drives. It is used to transfer personal information across different devices. However, some people would grab information from other computers without permission. It’s an invasion of privacy. Privacy is a major issue when it comes to Technological misuse because people would use it’s purpose for invasion rather than safety.
