This is a video search system like youtube with a concentric spectra of associated video moments being played simultaneously around the key video, which is changed based on the eye movement of the subject as it is drawn away from the central video towards points of interest. The surrounding videos should be classified according to gestural matches and/or a database of emotional biofeedback measurements taken from the distribution of subjects. It would be like thinking.

Actually they could just do this by taking Bing Video search and making all the thumbnails move and feeding mouse movements back into the search engine. Microsoft, if you want to throw a few talents my way, my email is jeesushchristus@yahoo.com

       It sounds a little like the Google 'Web' thing (minus the biometric feedback) that associated linked results visually in a spiderwebby-spreadsheet thing. I don't think they're doing it anymore.

       I went searching for it and have determined that it has evolved into a Google Chrome feature. I can't be sure because I'd have to pay for it.   

       Anyway, it seems like a rudimentary buiding block for an idea like this, which I think is pretty cool. This bun is conditional upon extrapolation. Consider it a grant.

       I don't know why it didn't occur to me before, pornography.

       Which of course is what this would converge on as it would be the most eye catching. Or horrendous graphic violence.
