As technology doubles every 18 months and we get closer to becoming cyborgs, the line between reality and virtual reality seems to have blurred into nonexistence.

We live our lives through the Facebook HUD. We have “friends” we only see online. Some of us work exclusively online, and others even have “Second Lives” in the form of videogames.

All of this can be done without lifting a finger or leaving your home. All you gotta do is plug in.
Sounds a little like the Matrix don’t ya think?

German photographer, Patrick Runte brings 8-bit to the real world with “Jump & Run,” a collection of retro videogames brought to life.

If Kinect was anything like this I might actually wanna play it.

Gallery after the jump!
