Just out of curiosity, who likes video games? I know that I do and just about anything that involves them. I even love the film Gamer from a couple of years ago exploring a hypothesized reality where gaming reaches a new level by not only allowing you to control a character, but a human being, miles away. Now when I thought about this, I thought that gaming would never take this turn and if it did would do so years and years from now. But to my surprise it was closer than I expected. As a matter of fact, it’s already in progress at the University of Washington. Now when I say it’s already in progress, I don’t mean that people are in total control of other individuals, no. But one person has been able to influence, if not control, a movement enacted by another. One man strapped with and EEG helmet was able to send an electrical signal from one side of campus to another, to a man stepped with a transcranial magnetic stimulation (TMS) coil and cause him to tap a spacebar on a keyboard many times in which the tapping of the spacebar caused the man to take part in a video game. Thought this was not overtly his own action, he described the action as being carried out subconsciously as if it were a simple muscle twitch. Creepy, right? Though the article is dated from August of last year, I never knew that this was actually something being researched, let alone possibly becoming a true reality. But as exciting as this might be to me, if this get to the level of Gamer, the implications that this brings are quite scary.
