The Painful Future of Video Games, Virtual Worlds Enter Reality

Mark Dice and Jason Bermas discuss the future of video gaming. They reference a Disney rep's statement that has to do with tracking people's movements with high-tech surveillance. Bermas points out that implantable microchips could also make the human/computer interface much more intimate. Very soon, we will be seeing video game systems that interact with us biologically! The real and the virtual are quickly coming to a crossroads, and when they do things will never be the same. The art project entitled PainStation only hints at what is to come in virtual gaming.

Listen to Dice and Bermas discuss the future of gaming, Ray Kurzweil, and the big picture in general...

Living Automatic Intelligence



In this experiment (video), a simulated organism explores a world in which its own nervous system is embodied as physical matter surrounding it.  This means that the virtual agent can literally see its own brain, and potentially interact with it!

Consider that the signals crossing between the organism and its external reality form a super-organism.  Imagine that the landscape, and sky, were also organisms - and that their "nervous systems" were short-circuited with the spider's...
