Product description

Product Description

Struggling actor Yoshi Goto is disappearing. He needs a starring role, and fast, or he’ll end up as forgotten as the displaced islander tribe living by the sea-wall. If only he could afford an augmented reality Lenz, then he could focus on his career reinvention and forget about the rising seas coming for them all. But when he's offered a Lenz and a role in the ultimate mixed-reality experience, unusual events challenge him to see beyond the Lenz's illusions. The last thing his re-invention needs—he thinks—is an inconvenient awareness or islander magic.

It’s 2039. Ten years have passed since the Earth Shift tsunamis devastated the world, and some fear there’ll be more. To forget the uncertain future, the citizens of the coastal city of Shibido immerse themselves in the Maya Lenz—an augmented reality contact lens that hides what they don’t want to see. Even when the rising seas force an islander tribe to take up residence by Shibido’s sea wall, it’s months before they’re noticed.

Unable to afford a Lenz, Yoshi sees the refugees, and he fears becoming just as invisible. So, when Maya offer him a Lenz and a role in their next mixed-reality project, he’s all in. But with the flaws of his goals exposed by a magnetic stranger named Kai, his career threatened by doppelgänger androids, and his vision haunted by a homeless boy who may or may not be real, Yoshi fears he’s losing his grip on reality. But something even more magical than the Lenz, and more profound than love, is demanding he rise to his most challenging role—to be someone real in a world of uncertainty.

Blending the technological, spiritual and supernatural, this tale of regained hope in a fantastically imagined augmented future will touch you deeply. Immerse yourself in the mind-bending mixed reality of The Lenz.
