It's a show today full of AR, VR and projection technology...plus a couple of other pieces of tech goodness. First up, Swedish researchers are conducting tests with human patients and virtual reality to see how readily their brains will accept someone else's body as their own. The results were pretty surprising, with the majority of test subjects accepting the "new body" within seconds and disassociating with their own bodies when seeing them from a third-person perspective.
There's also a crazy horror game coming to mobile devices sometime next year: Night Terrors uses scanning to rebuild a model of your home/apartment/office, and transforms it into a scary game meant for you to play when all the lights are out. Honestly, we would have accepted the title NOPE.
We're also discussing new releases and a little invention that might make getting injections painless.
