Here's a video from Kernel: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=1iLOlb281OM I'm conflicted. It doesn't meet the requirements of the 'VR in Action' thread, so I won't post it there, but it's of non-trivial interest.

    This should make certain experiments a breeze to perform. E.g. neurofeedback, maybe also Alzheimer's research. There might also be some good uses in gaming. But the way this is presented, it's hard to tell. I think it's aimed at neuroscientists who work with VR and FNIRS, who would be impressed by this simple demo.

    There's a new multi-university research effort underway to see if the right kind of stimulation can reverse Alzheimer's; and this would help with that. Amazingly, if you flash strobing light at someone at a constant 40 hertz, it causes their glial cells to activate, and clean up junk in the brain. It may be that even better junk-cleaning stimuli exist, that this could help uncover. The effects are even greater when you combine it with the right sound / hearing stimuli.
