Step Towards Real Life Matrix

This article from New Scientist News discusses the possibility that Sony might be able to develop a real life matrix. That is, people may be able to watch movies and play computer games in which they can also get to smell, taste and perhaps even feel things. The prospect was raised by Sony's approval for a patent on a device for transmitting sensory data directly into the human brain. The author discusses how this device might work but notes that Sony declined New Scientist's request for an interview with the inventor. If the method described by Sony works, the author speculates on its uses in research and medicine.
