Biofeedback games.


The Science Museum in London is about to open a new fairground ride exhibit called Thrill Laboratory which will monitor biofeedback from users to see how they are reacting to the experience. The idea seems to be that one day video games and arcade rides will alter the experience they give us based on the physical and emotional feedback they receive from the players. Mmm….Check out the ‘Ere be Dragons game prototype for more on this stuff.

 Future video games could routinely monitor players’ vital signs and emotional state to ensure a truly exhilarating experience…The Science Museum installation will include 3 different rides – the Booster, to measure the physiology of excitement and thrill; a ghost train, to measure fear and anticipation; and a ride called Miami Trip, a gentler ride designed to explore pleasure.


  • This is amazing. I've only heard about biofeedback being used for breathing techniques and meditation. It's interesting to see it being used for entertainment.

  • Still very much early days though by the look of it!
