In the future, a new psychotherapeutic treatment called PT has been invented. Thanks to a machine called the DC Mini, it is possible to enter patients' dreams and record them in order to plumb the depths of thought and the unconscious. While the process is still in the testing phase, one of the DC Mini's prototypes is stolen, creating panic among the scientists who developed this little revolution.

The opportunity to explore virtual worlds wasn't something invented in the 2010s: the original headsets appeared in 1968 with Ivan Sutherland's Sword of Damocles, for the first time offering wearers the chance to project themselves outside of reality. Become a spectator of this story of technology and a new era of live experiences. Take control of an experimental time capsule that will transport you back to the origins of virtual reality and the birth of a new imagination, to better understand its full potential and question the current world about its future.
