Researchers at University College London are using the old skool computer game Pac-Man to test how human volunteers react to danger, Sneak has discovered. The human guinea pigs are given an electric shock if they are caught in the Pac-Man maze, which is apparently a great way to test fear. Sneak reckons IT could be used in more inventive ways to test other human emotions, however.
The forthcoming release of the much anticipated iPhone could be the perfect chance to research mankind’s capacity to fall in love with inanimate objects, for example. And a study into irrational hatred might benefit from observing an argument between an open source-o-phile and a Microsoft executive. Not to mention that Sneak’s patience is severely tested every time he’s forced to wait 20 minutes for his PC to start up.
