Sony designers used Sci-Fi prototyping to depict “Tokyo in 2050” in collaboration with science fiction writers.
With “2050,” “Tokyo,” and “romance” as keywords that define the overarching theme, Sony designers and science fiction writers held workshops to explore life, habitats, senses, and well-being in 2050—and their creative effort resulted in a series of design prototypes and short science fiction stories. Each design prototype presents an idea for a service or product that is relevant to the messaging of each theme.
Theme 3: SENSE, 2050 Animated film of the short science fiction story “Odd Romance” Is it possible to engage in a romance that is independent of social institutions and even of one’s corporal presence?

There is a particular place they visit on their rendezvous: a virtual restaurant where they wear masks that hide their faces while permitting them to savor the aroma of foods.
