The world's first brain controlled thrill ride.
images 1 / 2 / 3 / 4
Neurosis features a six-degree-of-freedom motion simulator and virtual
reality headset to immerse the rider in a surreal environment,
controlled not by a ride operator, but by the rider's own brain
activity. This activity generates an audio-visual virtual world where
pathways emerge, tumbling, twisting and twirling the rider through a
psychedelic landscape. The rider's real-time neurological responses to
music, motion and visible wonders, activate fairground lighting; this
spectacular neuro-data constantly transforms the futuristic ride
artwork. Music pumps as the simulator mechanism undulates and sways.
Commissioned by Nesta for FutureFest 2015; development funded by Arts Council England; produced in partnership with Nottingham and Middlesex Universities, with the help of many friends.
