“Are you ready? Boot it.”

        "         LENNY
          Look, I want you to know what we're
          talking about here.  This isn't like
          TV only better.  This is life.  It's
          a piece of somebody's life.  Pure
          and uncut, straight from the
          cerebral cortex.  You're there.
          You're doing it, seeing it, hearing
          it... feeling it.

          I can get you what you want.  You
          just have to talk to me.  I'm your
          priest, your shrink, your main
          connection to the switchboard of
          souls.  I'm the Magic Man, the Santa
          Claus of the Subconscious.  You say
          it, you even think it, you can have
          it.  You want a girl, you want two
          girls?  I don't know what your thing
          is or what you're curious about...
          you want a guy?  You want to be a
          girl... see what that feels like?
          You want a nun to tie you up?  It's
          all doable."//talsorian

“Like Lenny, who has to learn to give up his aluminum-coated memories of what once was to live in the here and now, Strange Days struggles to come to terms with the relationship of memory to reality, the future to the present, and what could be to what is…. The minidisc system is called SQUID, a charming acronym for Superconducting Quantum Interference Device.”//Deep Focus

“This is a bit of virtual reality technology that permits the wearer to experience the events of another person’s life in short but absolutely vivid thirty-minute chunks.”//wolfson

“SQUID technology allows the user to experience someone else’s reality, “a piece of somebody’s life . . . straight from the cerebral cortex.” Through a centipede-shaped device strapped to the top of the head, it is possible to feel all the bodily sensations of sex, robbery, anything the user wants. Memories have become information on a disk; experiencing SQUID goes beyond the visual into the visceral. Strapped into the SQUID, you lose yourself in the sensations of another. You can get whatever you want, with no risks involved.”//enculturation

” A superconducting quantum interference device (SQUID) is a mechanism used to measure extremely weak signals, such as subtle changes in the human body’s electromagnetic energy field. Using a device called a Josephson junction, a SQUID can detect a change of energy as much as 100 billion times weaker than the electromagnetic energy that moves a compass needle.”//techtarget

Superconducting Quantum Interference Devices (SQUIDs) are the world’s most sensitive detectors of magnetic signals. Besides their use in the laboratory, they have a rich application potential in areas such as geophysics, biomagnetism and nondestructive testing of materials.”//ias

“Looking Through Cat’s Eyes is an article that recounts the success of an experiment performed at UC Berkley in which scientists attempted to tap into the electrical activity in a cat’s thalamus in order to view what the cat was actually seeing.”//transientme
