For some time now I’ve been fascinated by the idea that we might one day “jack in” and interface directly with the content on our computers. I feel strongly that by creating alternate realities (and replacing our work day commutes and material item purchases with digital equivalents) we might actually save the world. I think game makers are,without really thinking about it, laying huge amounts of the foundation that will make virtual reality a real-world reality. So when I read “scientists extract images directly from brain” I got really excited. We already have the input – ways of pumping digital info directly into the brain. With this, we can have output. And we’re on our way to a truly interactive VR experience. Cool stuff.
