    One of the most influential speeches in gaming I have ever seen.

    Minority Report anyone? Eye scanning to recognize you and then personalize an ad as u walk into the store. Yes this speech is very interesting but its only a matter of time from this point were instead of receiving points for something good you will be loosing points every time you do something you shouldn't have and before you know it we are all being policed. Far fetched I think not if this future is coming then we will all loose our freedoms.

    It seems to be the reward points you all ready get with coke, and grocery stores will apply to everything. Doesn't seem that scary.

    Wow, that's mind blowing and a bit scary. Still, it's undeniably fascinating.

    I refuse to be defined by the number of points I have, nor will I let useless points determine what I think is a good investment of my time

    Ok I no longer care about points unless I get them for some kind of skill. Imagine this stuff applied to gambling which is all ready psychologically manipulative.

    Also I can imagine tons of mechanical hacks to counter act that BS. For example there was a bonus level in we love katamari to collect a million roses, people found ways to manipulate the controller to collect roses while they weren't there. The ones I remembered used an oscillating fan and rubber bands.

    And yeah we live in a bubble of fake BS and his proposed future would just add even more fake BS.

    Socks officially blown off.....my feet are cold.

    This guy is great, very insightful or brilliant, it'd be interesting to see if this all comes to pass. It is a really great idea.

    Uhhh, that was a pretty bs speech, funny though. Sorry, but that'll NEVER be the future.

    There's not a chance that our future is gonna be some big RPG game, that's retarded. Didn't he say that technology can never converge? If so, then why would it for a real life RPG? How many people even care about that little plant in the car? How much you wanna bet it can be removed? Not everyone is into gaming now, even with the mass popularity of Farmville or the Wii. This man has an incredibly fantastic view of the future that's completely laughable.

    And everybody isn't gonna have sensors on them, I mean for God's sake, Virginia just outlawed the implementation of digital scanners because they thought it was the mark of the devil.

    That iPad caught me off guard, that was hilarious! Experience points does have an effect on the mindset of people whether for the better or worst, I don't know. I just hope we as a species don't have to rely on points to do what's morally right but if that's what it takes to elevate the society then so be it.

    This is a freaky future to think about. I don't want to be watched.

    I'm a very glad I sat through this whole entire presentation. It was an amazing way to look towards the future for sure! It was so cool how he was able to see a better future if we utilized these 'games based on reality' systems!

    The whole teacher using experience points and leveling up his students was way cool.

    Holy crap... This is really scary. Not because it is some thing that would be a horrible future if it happened but because it has a real posabilty of happening. Sure there are plenty of people that would say no but there are still going to be millions of people that give in to this. Think about it you are opposed to this and say "I am never going to do that." Your friends all tell you that they go their recored for their safe driving score so they are getting a $1,000 discount on their yearly car insurance. You are having trouble making ends meet and a $1,000 car insurance discound could help you out alot. Most likely you will say maybe it isn't so bad so you start doing it a little bit at a time untill you are fully part of the system.

    It is scary because there is nothing that violates our constitutional rights with this system. Every one would be welcoming it and oking it. It would basicly allow the goverment to track every thing we do. eventually only the criminals are going to be the ones that aren't doing it.

    While this very well might make the world a better place it is using a trick and brian washing to do it. Most people hear are Gamers so thing of Abstergo's paln in Assassins Creed. This is basicly the same thing it juse wouldn't be directly foced. It almost elimnates free will. yes you will still have your free will but you will be encuraged to not use it and only do actions that will earn you points.

    rewarding people to watch advertisements so we can buy more crap and cyclically consume over and over is a HUGE distortion of what is real.

    He touched on many subjects and targeted them to one distorted point. A distortion by the monetary system, this man and the audience are excited to see a world where rampant reward systems flood our lives to keep us satisfied. Just like any materialist reward system, a universal points system used in the "free market" for cyclical consumption is A BLIND ENSLAVEMENT!

    This "future" he talks about is going to happen if we continue with this horrible way of living. But it is not a "future" it is exactly what we have now, just changed by technology.

    I am horrified by this presentation and the dystopia that is blindly presented.

    Ladies and Gentlemen, if we do not do something about this world of monetary gain. It WILL turn into a dystopia this man presents, a dystopia of points that must be gained in order to live properly.

    WTF!? If anyone reading this comment is horrified by a future that is mentioned in this wonderful presentation and can clearly see the societal distortion of our money world follow these links and join the global movement: zeitgeistmovie.com thezeitgeistmovement.com thevenusproject.com

    This resonates with everything that picks up speed these days - spiritual awakening.
    From Eckhart Tolle speaking of being in the moment to Nithyananda speaking of being physical and radiating, all points to the same, enjoying our humanity and realizing the truth - that we are all awesome (a.k.a. enlightened) !

    I'm proud to be human !
