In an interview with IGN, Valve co-founder Gabe Newell offers some comments about the new Half-Life: Alyx VR game as well as brain-AI interfaces. Newell says the latter will become a big thing over the next decade and he believes we're a lot closer to The Matrix-like technology than many people believe:
"We're way closer to The Matrix than people realize," Newell said. "It's not going to be The Matrix—The Matrix is a movie and it misses all the interesting technical subtleties and just how weird the post-brain-computer interface world is going to be. But it's going to have a huge impact on the kinds of experiences we can create for people."
