Vsauce3 about portals


Jake explains the concept of portals, in video games and in reality. Wormholes would be great portals, meaning a doorway to another place, but such thing cannot be created.

An interesting thing I learned from the video above is that our memories help us create better imaginative worlds. This discovery lead game designers create better video games, like Sims, where there is the illusion of choice. Or think about MMORPG where your opponents are real people. You got a lot of choice in there and this is why those games are still up and running to this day.

Games are portals, the internet is a portal, but you can we get better at immersion? Jake says yes: brain computer interfacing. Learn more from the video at the beginning of this post.
