Control of the viewer during viewing takes place through a special headset that reads the electrical activity of the brain
A team of scientists from Nottingham University in England presented a 27-minute film called The Moment. The peculiarity of the picture lies in the fact that its plot can vary depending on the mood and attention of the viewer.
Control of the viewer during viewing takes place through a special headset, which reads the electrical activity of the brain, and also measures the level of mood and attention.
“The headset does read the tiny electrical signals generated by neurons in our brain. The plot of the film changes because of how you feel and how you feel the changes in the picture, “- said graduate student of Nottingham University and one of the authors of the development, Richard Ramchurn.
The plot of the film tells about the future of mankind, in which it struggles with artificial intelligence. Despite the fact that the painting lasts only 27 minutes, the material for its creation was photographed several times more. Depending on the reaction of the viewer, each scene has several versions that are combined in different ways. Ramchurn stressed that there are about 101 trillion different versions of the film.
Since the action of the film is controlled by one spectator, it is unlikely that the picture will become widespread in the film distribution. For larger sites, Ramchurn has other ideas: his team’s plans are to create a special controller that will measure the average reaction of the hall, and on this basis to change the storyline.
The film’s premiere is scheduled for June 7 at the Sheffield Film Festival. Later, other people in the UK will be able to appreciate the picture.
