hi all


found an interesting read here methinks... researchers have created a helmet that feeds the brain with an alternative reality....


Japanese researchers have developed an "Inception helmet" that manipulates reality to simulate such experiences, and could be used to study cognitive dysfunction in psychiatric disorders.





Most of us distinguish between real and imagined events using unconscious processes to monitor the accuracy of our experiences.

But these processes can break down in some psychiatric conditions. Patients with schizophrenia, for example, can experience auditory and visual hallucinations that they believe are real, while some brain damaged and delusional patients live in a world of perpetual false memories.


They decided to experiment with the SR system and the findings where quite amazing, as most of the participants could not distinguish the live scenes from the recorded scenes even after the doppelgänger scene revealed how the system works...


To test the system, Suzuki and his colleagues designed a simple, yet ingenious, experiment.

They recruited a group of participants, and then filmed each one as they entered a room and received instructions from one of the researchers.

In turn, each participant was asked to sit in a chair in the same room, and don the head-mounted display, which then played a sequence of live and recorded scenes, and substituted one for the other without the participants' knowledge.


this video is definitely worth a watch...!



www.guardian.co.uk...

this could make for wonders for those in need of serious psychiatric help... but the fact that the brain cannot identify when or if an alternate reality is shown, makes me slightly nervous ...!

but still very cool stuff


hope you enjoy the read

peace x)

Wow, they really get into their research in Japan. Apparently they hire hot, professional dancers as part of their research experiments... very interesting!

These products need to get mass produced. I would love to have one. Go to another reality without bankers, violence, and government.

Just started watching Sword Art Online so it's kind of funny seeing this on here.

Pretty cool what they are trying to accomplish. Although to have " Life" Memories they would literally have to create their own digital people have give them 100+ years of experiences to interact with everybody in the "world" so as to trick them and seem real.

I am NOT impressed.

You cover my ears and eyes and let me only hear audio through the headphones and put both a screen and an integrated camera in front of me so that's the only things I could see - and don't let me touch anything.. and I wont be able to tell the difference between live and recorded images either. All they did was merge the camera and the video screen together and either switched them at will or superimposed them together. Big deal.
