“The film depicts a future in which human beings, known as “Oms” (a homonym of the French-language word hommes, meaning men), are creatures on the Draags’ home planet, where they are seen as pests and sometimes kept as pets (with collars). The Draags are an alien species which is humanoid in shape but a hundred times larger than humans, with blue skin, fan-like earlobes and huge, protruding red eyes. The Draags also live much longer than human beings – one Draag week equals a human year. Some Oms are domesticated as pets, but others run wild, and are periodically exterminated. The Draags’ treatment of the Oms is ironically contrasted with their high level of technological and spiritual development.”
“The eyePhone is a multi-function electronic device that’s inserted into the eye (the earpiece goes into the ear). It is sold by MomCorp. Among other things, it can be used to send and receive Twits, record videos and publish videos on the internet. It even functions as a phone! The eyePhone records everything the user sees and hears.
Mom uses the information gathered from the Twits to send personalized ads and – once somebody has gathered one million followers – to send through it a virus, which will control brains of followers. The eyePhone is a satirical recreation of the real-life Apple iPhone”.
