Our wetware is glitchy. When you stick a pencil in water, it looks broken. When you smell sunscreen, you remember your summer fling. When you remember that person removing their sunglasses and offering you a Corona, maybe you feel gut-punched by an absent fist. Why? What's "real"? In her debut collection of reports, We Have the Technology, Kara Platoni asks scientists about our senses, looking for answers to questions about how we perceive reality through our seers and hearers and feelers. She also talks with people who are working to tweak our sensory organs, to make eyes that can see a wider spectrum, ears that can hear what dogs hear. RICH SMITH
