You won’t have to worry about having a computer plugged into your brain, the most they can do with that right now are very simple tasks and what he’s talking about is pure science fiction at this point. There’s neuroscience involved and that field of study isn’t even close to halfway done, so let’s not 2001: A Space Odyssey it, the author did at the time of writing think that with the way technology is progressing we’d be travelling space like that by 2001. He even lived to get disappointed with how little progress had actually been made on that front 🤷‍♀️ It’s also not weird to be scared of that, it’s actually such a common fear that when having an EEG done they had posters that it doesn’t read your mind and then the nurse calmly and in simple terms explained what it actually does and they’re not reading your mind. Not that I thought it did but alright, I was still curious about what they were going to do. What they could read were waves that are typical for my type of epilepsy, but those bright flashing lights probably aren’t nice for anyone, nor did they actually trigger a seizure (they were just white lights, not the alternating ones, I didn’t need them since the doctor could tell from the EEG and someone had seen me have a tonic-clonic seizure just suddenly in the middle of our conversation. That neurologist was really nice and noticed just how curious I was about learning more about what he could see in the results, most people don’t feel like humouring my curiosity though. He also made jokes and gave practical advice as well as wanted me to get on the best medication for it so really good doctor. Yes I’m like twelve, sorry 🙄

The Razer chair: It’s as comfortable as you can except ergonomic carbon fibre to be I suppose, but those circles signal their “tactile functionality for complete immersion” meaning it’s something that you sense by touch so uh... vibrating chair? Well I guess a massage chair could be nice, definitely not all of them ugh I’ve tried some really bad hurty things. They were just too rough for me and I even had bruises on my calves from one o.O; Even the rumble feature in certain games that use it too much I’ve always have to turn it off since it gets painful and while I do also have high pain tolerance despite my pain sensitivity being that pretty much everything hurts, I still don’t like being in pain if I can help it. Unless it involves going to the doctor so people usually have to drag me to one because I look like I’m dying and eh hm... actually have had serious infections that required hospitalisation that people say I must have been in a crazy amount of pain but just don’t like going to the doctor at all so keep telling people and myself that it’ll go away on its own 😬 then turned yellow one time and they were like NO IT’S NOT you’re going to the ER 😅

Yeah there was this weird thing that happened here too where someone was expecting a limited edition and it shipped but then it was late, then too late. Person called the post office like hey, my package is really late, it’s a limited edition that’s sold out, they said that they were going to look into it. Oh it just so happened to have been put to the side in a warehouse of their and it’s getting delivered tomorrow. Uh huh, sure, a big package from a company known to sell electronics just “happens” to be misplaced. More likely they were hoping that nobody would ask for it but rather to have a replacement sent (since it doesn’t say what it is on the box) but since the limited edition game was sold out there was no option to ask for a replacement to be sent and the post office had to look into it. Still it’s pretty weird that they expect the company to replace things lost in transit, or maybe they have some sort of a deal with them like insurance and the post office pays, idk 🤷‍♀️ still, they got their package, unopened, and a story to tell, so it’s a happy ending I guess

I'm pretty sure the cosmetic advantage has already been a thing. For example, there are some league of legend skins that have advantages just by changing the way the models look and colors. People underestimate the advantages that can be attained with simple cosmetic changes. Just something as changing a single color can give someone an edge in a video game. This is why people that are color blind have been used as scouts. Something that is perfectly camouflaged from an average person stands out like a sore thumb to them. So, taking that into count what's to stop that from happening in the future in video games? Granted, I know this is in reference to an FPS game making a pretty much all black skin. The only logical thing I can think of to prevent cosmetic advantages is to just ban cosmetics entirely in competitive/tournament play.

Actually brain interface tech would act more as a graphics card more than a feedback device. Dreams are proof that we can experience anything without much effort. This would be a huge step-up from immersive and simulation tech on the market.

Its too bad crypto mining has changed and consumer gaming cards are useless for it now. Cards made for mining have a different architecture and no video output, being designed specifically for the task and are 10x better than a card made for 3d rendering. That bmw rig is useless as a mining rig and a waste of cards. double fail.

No your not weird. They are definitely moving towards transhumanism, and the ability to control and monetize people. Musk came out with that hardware brain interface. Its just the beginning. Sure its just tech that can be used for good or evil. But, these tech oligarchs are moving towards a China model of fascism and censorship. Many think its gonna be some kinda magical utopia, in reality its becoming Orwell's 1984 pretty quickly.

Utopia literally means "no place." Which makes it a apt word for an imaginary world that conflicts with the reality of human nature.

Brain-computer interfaces do NOT require you to "plug" anything into your brain. It's all transcranial (ie electrodes on your head) so far except in the cases of people with traumatic brain injuries or other neurological conditions which require implants. Those implants might make it possible for severely disabled people to communicate, go online, have jobs, play games, and connect with other people. Maybe you should research the technology before turning a very promising technology into The Matrix. That's not what it is. It could eventually become that, I suppose. But that is not what Newell is talking about.

Um, "brain interfaces" are used a lot in modern medicine, including cutting edge prosthetic technology. While brain hijacking technology might be a possibility down the line, it's a bit of a stretch to think that we'd be in the kind of danger falcon here is concerned about. It's like not buying a smart car out of fear it will kidnap you or something. It's not impossible, but it's not likely enough to really think it will happen.
