A film controlled by the brain. The new type of movie is made, that can change during the viewing


Enjoy watching!Enjoy watching! - Scientists at the University of Nottingham have made a film that can change while watching. Changes in the story depend on the level of involvement of the audience.

The movie is called "Moment" and lasts 27 minutes, although the material for it was shot several times more. The scientist Richard Ramscher, who became the director of the film, managed to achieve 101 trillion (!) Combinations of story development.

When viewing the audience should wear a special EEG-headset, which reads the electrical activity of the brain in the frequency range and sends data to the laptop. These indicators serve as an indicator of boredom. If the film ceased to arouse interest, then special software changes the length of the scenes, background music, phrases of the characters. A man can only entertain itself.

The story of the film is appropriate: it is a story about the future, in which computers are becoming a source of threat to humanity. The only thing that does not change in the film is the final.

"Moment" will begin to show at the Sheffield Film Festival. From there the film will be taken to the cities of Great Britain in a specially equipped mobile cinema.
