ExtremeTech » Brown University creates first wireless, implanted brain-computer interface

ExtremeTech » Brown University creates first wireless, implanted brain-computer interface | Tracking Transmedia | Scoop.it

"...One of the features that the Brown researchers seem most excited about is the device’s power consumption, which is just 100 milliwatts. For a device that might eventually find its way into humans, frugal power consumption is a key factor that will enable all-day, highly mobile usage. Amusingly, though, the research paper notes that the wireless charging does cause significant warming of the device, which was “mitigated by liquid cooling the area with chilled water during the recharge process and did not notably affect the animal’s comfort.” Another important factor is that the researchers were able to extract high-quality, “rich” neural signals from the wireless implant — a good indicator that it will also help human neuroscience, if and when the device is approved.

 

Moving forward, the wireless BCI is very much a part of BrainGate — the Brown University research group that’s tasked with bringing these neurological technologies to humans. So far, the pinnacle of BrainGate’s work is a robotic arm controlled by a tethered BCI, which paralyzed patients can use to feed themselves (video embedded below). While the wireless BCI isn’t approve for human use (and there’s no indication that they’re seeking approval yet), it was designed specifically so that it should be safe for human use..."

This Is How We'll Experience Storytelling in the Future | WIRED | Tracking Transmedia | Scoop.it
A new exhibition looks at ways storytelling will change in years to come.

 

IN THE FUTURE, you won’t just consume stories by watching a movie or tuning into a podcast via earbuds. You’ll be standing in the middle of them—maybe you’ll even be able to see the blurry  tip of your nose in front of you—with panoramic vision, perhaps a sense of smell, and maybe even the slight feeling of vertigo. “Originally stories were living things,” says Charlie Melcher. “It was a dialogue, something you could interrupt, or physically respond to.” Melcher thinks that sort of interactivity is exactly what the future holds...."

Very cool. Videogame based on Borges short story is in fact Borgesian

Very cool. Videogame based on Borges short story is in fact Borgesian | Tracking Transmedia | Scoop.it
The Statement of Randolph Carter

Robert Yang hopes that players of his latest game called Intimate, Infinite can be "patient" with its experimental nature. He made it across three months for makega.me's "Series" pageant, and is a multiple adaptation of Jorge Luis Borges's short story, The Garden of Forking Paths....

Vivalist's curator insight, April 13, 9:07 AM

"What Intimate, Infinite explores through the framework of The Garden of Forking Paths is how videogames allow us to experiment with alternative narratives and the infinite. Save states are good examples of this, as they allow us to load up a previous point in a narrative and explore its other possibilities. Likewise, checkpoints let us change the future by rewinding time and retrying to overcome what previously killed us.

Intimate, Infinite also goes far beyond speaking about videogames, and just like the riddles and textual puzzles that Borges employs, it introduces philosophical concepts such as modal logic, time paradoxes, and the ontology of possibility. It's an enigmatic text that has us think outside of our own linearity, but it always comes back to the same ending despite suggesting many other possibilities—it's made for interpretation; a starting point for complex thought."

Virtual reality enhances the big screen at Tribeca Film Festival

Virtual reality enhances the big screen at Tribeca Film Festival | Tracking Transmedia | Scoop.it
A 360-degree filming of NBC’s “Saturday Night Live” 40th Anniversary Special will allow viewers to shift the direction of the camera at will. Some have used the feature to train the camera away from performers like Jerry Seinfeld so they can ogle famous audience members like Larry David and Michael Douglas whispering to each other and fixing their hair.
“Maybe this is a little film-geeky, but VR is really challenging the language of cinema in a big way,” says Ingrid Kopp, director of interactive at the Tribeca Film Institute.
“It takes away the frame, it takes away the edits,” Kopp said. ‘This is the time when the future Martin Scorseses are going to be testing the waters and showing some of their early work in VR.”
