The Inside Story of Oculus Rift and How Virtual Reality Became Reality | Gadget Lab | WIRED

The Inside Story of Oculus Rift and How Virtual Reality Became Reality | Gadget Lab | WIRED | arslog | Scoop.it
Oculus has found a way to make a headset that does more than just hang a big screen in front of your face. By combining stereoscopic 3-D, 360-degree visuals, and a wide field of view—along with a supersize dose of engineering and software magic—it hacks your visual cortex. As far as your brain is concerned, there’s no difference between experiencing something on the Rift and experiencing it in the real world.

luiy's curator insight, May 19, 2:24 PM

Neuromancien, RoboCop, Ghost in the Shell, Deus Ex... Les concepts évoqués dans ces œuvres de fiction, de l'interface neuronale à la réalité augmentée sans oublier les exosquelettes, les prothèses biomécaniques ou les modifications nanotechnologiques, sont en effet désormais à notre portée, quand elles ne sont pas déjà implémentées. Cela passe par les smartphones devenus indispensables et par l'essor des objets connectés : smartwatches, lunettes (voire lentilles), vêtements. Mais aussi et surtout par les progrès effectués dans le domaine médical, qu'il s'agisse de génétique ou de bionique.

Can the Nervous System Be Hacked?

Can the Nervous System Be Hacked? | arslog | Scoop.it
Welcome to the brave new world of bioelectronics: implants that can communicate directly with the nervous system in order to try to fight everything from cancer to the common cold.

..

Conceptually, bioelectronics is straightforward: Get the nervous system to tell the body to heal itself. But of course it’s not that simple. “What we’re trying to do here is completely novel,” says Pedro Irazoqui, a professor of biomedical engineering at Purdue University, where he’s investigating bioelectronic therapies for epilepsy. Jay Pasricha, a professor of medicine and neurosciences at Johns Hopkins University who studies how nerve signals affect obesity, diabetes and gastrointestinal-motility disorders, among other digestive diseases, says, “What we’re doing today is like the precursor to the Model T.”

Mlik Sahib's curator insight, May 20, 4:41 AM

"The film is a battle cry against those who seek to snuff art out of the world, a call for us to not slide further back into our natural barbaric state. It tells us that whatever the threat, culture is only our only weapon against an endless deluge of muck and filth and shit. And it reminds us that, though all of it, great art must survive."
