Studio Tender Claws is known for the game Virtual Virtual Reality, which affectionately mocks the more grandiose claims of virtual reality proponents. TendAR is a smaller project about the supposed magic of computer vision. It’s a mobile augmented reality game where two (real) people talk to a (fake) fish-based artificial intelligence that’s been designed to taste basic emotional states.

The fish gets absolutely ecstatic when he “eats” happiness and anger, but he also isn’t all that great at recognizing them. When he doesn’t, he gets upset with you, the human being with an actual face and real feelings for not matching up with his algorithms
