Direct brain stimulation lets gamers play blind

In a University of Washington experiment, players were able to navigate through virtual mazes without ever ...

As indicated by the name, video games are a very visual medium. But that hasn’t stopped participants in a study at the University of Washington (UW) successfully playing through a game without ever actually looking at it, hearing it or using any of the standard five senses. Instead, they were guided through virtual mazes via direct brain stimulation, in a demonstration of technology that could one day form the basis of sensory prosthetics to help visually-impaired people navigate the real world, or provide a new way for anyone to interact with virtual ones.
