Virtual Reality / Hyper-Reality
Virtual Reality / Hyper-Reality Virtuality and Simulation Imagine that you participated in a world where all the objects and all the people seemed real enough to touch but you knew--somewhere in your mind--that what you were experiencing was both constructed, and mediated by technology. The telephone, for example. You're pretty sure you're having a conversation with your friend as if he were in the room with you, and it's easy to feel that he's right there.

Odwalla, Inc. is engaged in the manufacture of fruit-based beverages such as fruit juices and smoothies. The company also manufactures soy-based beverages and nutritional bars. History Odwalla was created in 1980 by Bonnie Bassett, Gerry Percy and Greg Steltenpohl in Santa Cruz, California. The three founders thought of marketing fruit juices and started the business by using a secondhand juicer to extract orange juice. They then sold their product to restaurants in the area. Five years after its foundation, Odwalla became incorporated and by 1988 had expanded its business to San Francisco.

In the following I will present some of Jean Baudrillard’s theoretical claims about the mass media in the postmodern era
Mette Støttrup Jensen, The Teletubbies, Hyperreality and Narcissism Introduction In this assignment I wish to examine if the children’s television series the Teletubbies can be seen as a product of hyperreality and narcissism. To be able to do this I will introduce key concepts in Baudrillard’s theory about hyperreality, which, according to him, is the present state of affairs in what he calls the third order simulacra – and what is more commonly called postmodernity.

Major Philosophy: Experiments in Ontology: Baudrillard and Hyperreality
One of Baudrillard’s key insights is that upon radicalization, every theory (or system) is subject to the form of reversibility. He is speaking specifically about systems of signification, but following the sentiments of his own methodology – that we take ideas to their extremes – can we not extend his notion of reversibility to other kinds of systems? The idea is that taken to the extreme, any theory or system will fold back on itself. An interesting way to read the concept ‘hyperreality’ is as a kind of reversal from simulation to reality. A simulation is a copy of some real. As simulation reaches totality, as it covers over the real completely, there is nothing left but simulation.
