"At the age of six I wanted to be a cook. At seven I wanted to be Napoleon. And my ambition has been growing steadily ever since."

-- Salvador Dali

He used to look at the water soaked wall paper in class and see forms growing inside the layered colors. His visual mind was his hammer.

This visual manipulation led to his eccentric and enthusiastic approach to the world. I think we could all do with it.

This idea is for contact lenses that fill in shapes and colors that register to the visual field. The main algorithm for this mechanism will deal mostly with forming fractal patterns out of the wallpaper shapes and projecting said patterns to the user's eye. The results will be extraordinary, as AI feedback algorithms allow creative control over said patterns. That is, brain behavior will be registered and translated to pleasing alterations in the visual field. "pleasing" will be a rated variable based on the intensity of alpha waves. This is all very "out there", but I see you have come to this spot tonight, and I welcome you with eager minds for innovation, temporarily lost souls pushing for a lack of adhesion to the limiting interpersonal cycles of everyday life and the finished books contained, therein. Behold, this is a playground. Tell me that you hate freeloader thinking, and then go post something about a coffee cup that suggests places to put the rings in order to create coffee cup pictures of horses and race cars and your boss's ass. Cheers to all who've come this far. My attitude remains the same: cautious.

       'Dali Goggles' would make a reasonably good euphamism for LSD.   

       What's the link between egotism and visionary manipulation again?

       I put my nose on sideways and paddled my clock down stream to work, where it melted and dripped all over this huge, writhing croissant.+

       The fecking tiger ate your croissanterino [GumBob]. You'll have to do with this rabbit.
Now, get off MY interweb.

       This could be a line of diverse type of products to suit all preferences: Picasso, Van Gogh, Frida Kahlo goggles I would also like to try. I only hope their "vision" of the world provides an LSD-free caleidoscope without the mandatory depression that seems to "come" with the package.

       Here's one someone needs to do something with: 'Salvador Dalai Lama.'

       How about hooking a TASR up to your visual cortex. Wouldn't that do the same as the contact lense idea?
JeffG, May 24 2006

       [Rayford] that's genius. I'm tempted. What's a TASR?
zen_tom, May 24 2006

       Pity all I've got is these Dalai llama beans.

       I can't get the link to work on this article, but I thought you guys would be interested.   

       "Pregnant female subjects included many rememberances in their reports that can only be categorized as hallucinogenic. Not only were their behaviors objectively noted as more peaceful and markedly euphoric, but their memory of the hours preceding and, to a grerater extent, during labor were significantly affected by Salvador Dalai Lamaze."
