Anderson Atlas is an author and illustrator in Arizona

Inspired by crowded malls, streams hidden by giant boulders, patches of moss, charred forests, and distant mountain ranges, Anderson’s goal is to catch the lost dreams and carry them from the shadows of forgotten time, setting the fantastic on your plate to satiate your rabid hunger for adventure.

Gym Class in the Near Future

In the near future, gym class is held in VR virtual pods. How lucky are they?

what is the game? JUMP-KICK!

The object of Jump-kick—kicking one of the dozens of balls into a large ring at the end of the field to rack up points for your team—was many times harder than it sounded. First, the field—unlike a typical flat soccer pitch—was a box, and full of rainbow-colored, foamy obstacles. Gravity was light like on Mars. Small jumps allowed the player to soar. The cool thing about this game was that each side of the field had a gravitational pull. Jump high enough, you wouldn’t fall back down but up. The sim flipped the player automatically, landing you on your feet. Same with the sides.

The pods simulated the virtual environment with walking tracks, fans, shocks and tension bars, all the while keeping your body centered but accommodating every motion. Running around and jumping was serious exercise.
