At FutureFest 2015, we considered what will thrill us next.
We’re finding ever more intricate ways to spark the pleasure-centers of the brain to jolt us into experiencing life more intensely. By hacking our senses - via mind science and chemistry, biotech and design - how can we establish new ideas of fun? What’s on the extraordinary, glimmering horizon of human pleasure?
