There appeared in the middle of Future's living room the holographic figure of Miss Reality.  The online markets Chat-bot started its sales talk and started changing different garments on Miss Reality's holographic figure.

Mr Future called out - "that is that butterfly garment, the second one." - the garment of his liking and ordered. The online store Chatbot voiced "Your order for garment acknowledged."
