What if you could suddenly share the mind and skills of a Stephen Hawking, Beyoncé, Lindsey Vonn or anyone and everyone on the planet? Based on real contemporary science, we re-imagine the modern movie -going experience with the first action film for the mind.
Fathom Events has a cool new event coming up in which a film will be released for 1 day only. Yep, you either see it that day or you’re SOL. Why just 1 day? Because of this:
While this live screening takes place around the country, 1,000 moviegoers (including those at AMC Empire) will be wearing a cognition headband, enabling scientists to capture the cognition state of participants simultaneously and in real time. The result will be a world-first image of combined brainwave activity, which could drive our research into the nature of human cognition for years to come.
So, the headband thing sounds interesting. Figuring out how much actual science is going into this thing has piqued my curiosity. I’ve requested attendance from the folks over at Fathom Events so if I’m approved I’ll be sure to share details about the experience with you guys! If you’re interested in attending then you should check out the details and head over to the Fathom Events website.
IN THEATERS MAR 28
One Thousand Minds Connected LIVE
Cinema audiences will help make neuroscience history: for the first time, one thousand human minds will be simultaneously connected via cloud technology while they watch MindGamers. An image of that mass mind-state will be broadcast to cinemas across the nation as audiences in two locations participate by wearing a cognition headband.
Headlined by Sam Neill (Jurassic Park) and Tom Payne (The Walking Dead), the film follows a group of brilliant young students who create a wireless neural network with the potential to link every mind on Earth via a quantum computer. But they soon discover that that their innovation is part of a more sinister experiment.
This once-in-a-lifetime event will open with introductory talks from leaders in the fields of technology, neuroscience and the collective consciousness. Following the immersive feature film, MindGamers, the event will conclude with a LIVE Q&A and reveal the world’s first image of collective human cognition… created simultaneously by the audience.
