Millions of Virtual Shards

Characters: me, guy

I was playing with some wooden blocks that would stick together like LEGOs. They didn't plug into each other in any way, they were adhering through something more like magnetism.
A guy was narrating how they worked and describing how to create a duplicate of a group of blocks you had made. This sounded like an interesting feature so I was trying to follow the instructions. But they were referring to menu options.
me: "Wait. I don't see a menu on mine."
guy: "You have to turn it on first."
I noticed that the base block onto which I was building had an ON button and I pushed it. A dotted glowing yellow box hovered in front of my field of vision--like a viewfinder in a camera. Some writing and objects materialized in front of me, on a solid translucent wall. The wall was very exciting to me for some reason.
me: "Is it possible to...break that wall?"
guy: (laughing) "Probably, I guess."
me: "What would the pieces be like?"
guy: "Millions of virtual shards!"

The accounts written here are as true as I can manage. While the words are my own, they are not independent creative works of fiction —in any intentional way. Thus I do not consider the material to be protected by anything, other than that you'd have to be crazy to want to try and use it for genuine purposes (much less disingenuous ones!) But who's to say?
