The Future of Fear

By Billy The Kid / Word on the Street / 11th April 2017

It was only a matter of time before tech infiltrated the industry where we pay to scare the shit out of ourselves. The first step has materialised as the Neurotransmitter 3000. (Of course that’s what it’s called)

Imagined not by a scientist, but rather an artist; designer Daniel De Bruyn created the first phase as part of his final project at HKU University of the Arts Utrecht in the Netherlands. 

A single rider spins in circles as the seven-meter-high machine reacts to biometric data like heart rate, body temperature, orientation/gravity, and muscle tension for variations in motion. So basically it knows exactly how to blow your mind at any given point in the ride, and reacts as such – getting faster as you get more terrified.

Sounds like a wild time to us.
