Now that we're at the dawn of the VR age with the Oculus
Rift and HTC Vive all we need to do to step it up a notch is
add a brain wave reader to the head apparatus. Imagine
playing a horror game that sensed what you feared the most
in its world and sent you more of it (for example if there was
a certain kind of zombie that freaked you out the brain wave
reader would detect this and send you hordes more of them).
Or a soothing relaxation app that presented you with random
landscapes and gradually learned the scenery you loved by
reading your brain's positive reactions to what it sent you.
As brainwave reading technology matures more and more
applications would open up.
