What if you could engage in an artificial reality complete with touch?
Scientists have recreated the sense of touch with direct-to-brain electrical signals. While the science was done with the intention of giving people with prosthetics the ability to better sense whether things were hot, slippery, etc. – I can’t help but wonder if that same technology could be used to further enhance video games and other technology. What if you could somehow plug in your brain to an a simulated reality so that now games were a totally immersive experience?
I’m sure it would only be used for educational purposes. Obviously….
