going outside?

“Introducing GOING OUTSIDE, the astounding multipurpose activity platform that will revolutionize the way you spend your time.

GOING OUTSIDE is not a game or a program, not a device or an app, not a protocol or an operating system. Instead, it’s a comprehensive experiential mode that lets you perceive and do things firsthand.


1. Supports real-time experience through seamless mind-body interface. By GOING OUTSIDE, you’ll rediscover the joy and satisfaction of actually doing something.

2. Is completely hands-free. No keyboards, mice, controllers, touch pads, or joysticks.

3. Delivers authentic 3-D, real-motion video, with no lag time or artifacts.

4. Delivers “head-free” surround sound. No headphones, earbuds, speakers, or sound-bar arrays required—and yet, amazingly, you hear everything.

6. Enables complete interactivity with inanimate objects, animals, and Nature.

11. Provides access to everything not in your home, dorm room, or cubicle. Millions of people have already tried GOING OUTSIDE. Many of ‘your’ friends may even be GOING OUTSIDE right now! Why not join them and see what happens?”

My mom had this one: Go outside and don’t come back until I call you for dinner. Saturdays were long because she used to roust us out at 7am during the summer. (You can’t pick your parents….but we did get in a lot of really great dirt clod fights.)

we were lucky to live at the end of a cul-de-sac. we went outside every afternoon through dusk. we played tag, rode our bikes, tore through the woods, terrorized one another.

we’re giving our kids an entirely different experience. it’s also good. but i think they’re missing out on regularly GOING OUTSIDE.

I just looked trghuoh my Vegan Lunchbox cookbook last night and put bookmarks on every recipe I want to try soon…I eventually ended up bookmarking the whole book, practically! Haha. I love it! I hope I can buy your new cookbook…I have a huge wishlist of cookbooks and other vegan goodies. :)Thanks for your wonderful recipes and blog! Katie from Don’t Worry, Be Happy, Be Vegan 🙂
