Fascinating video but one has to wonder if this research is used in other research projects pertaining to advertising and military interests.  According to Pierre Sprey “MIT is a terrible place to be from if you’re gonna tell the truth about defense..they get more defense money than anyone.” (Source: Pentagon Labyrinth C-SPAN video).

And David Spielberg got ideas for his futuristic advertising used in the movie Minority Report from persons from MIT.
