Coffee Shop

Two friends meet up for a chat, one of them paying for coffee using the iPaid system. As they sit, one feels a kick from her soon-to-be born child, her Kicker Corset passes it on to her partner. A third friend arrives and sits down on the seat that the Extenda-bench offers up. Together the three of them look at the Baby Channel on Facebook Filter to see what the latest is in their parenting community. Nearby a freelancer uses a Interactions/Environmental Control Panel to blur and mute them out so he can focus on work. It’s not enough, however. He receives a text from his girlfriend followed by an Unspoken Words overlay, which shows him what she actually meant to say. Now he’ll never be able to concentrate!
