Soon this method will be implemented for cube dwelling office workers.

Employees will don helmets displaying a virtualized office environment including their computers and co-workers. The system will analyze work performance and reward employees with coffee sent through a tube located on the side of the helmet.

I've always imagined a system like that for VR game play. I thought the mouse would be running through some sort of maze, not in circles.

They think this was stimulating to a mouse, had they only realized that had their test subject had nine other mice on the LAN, then they'd see some real brain activity.

Quake is addictive. Even scientists can't stop thinking about it while at work. what did the mouse do to deserve that inhu-mouse treatment? haven't they proven research cause cancer in mice? add insanity to that.
