If Choose Your Own Adventure books weren’t your go-to in fourth grade there’s something seriously wrong with you. But you’re going to have another chance to dictate the creative process thanks to a movie that chooses its ending based on sensor data from the audience.

Many Worlds is a 15-minute short film that taps into — or at least attempts to tap into — the collective consciousness of a given audience by monitoring the heart rate, muscle tension, skin conductance and brain activity of four volunteer audience members. The movie then shows one of four endings based on how the crowd is responding.

'A phantom,' said my Uncle Mycroft, who had just materialised, 'is essentially a heteromorphic wave pattern that gains solidity when the apparition converts thermal energy from the surroundings to visible light. It's a fascinating process and I'm amazed no one has thought of harnessing it - a holographic TV that could operate from the heat given off by an average-size guinea pig.' ~ First Among Sequels, Jasper Fforde

At this time you go to the movies and put on a pair of 3-D spectacles.  In the near future you will have to hook up to electrodes apparently.

if you fail to grasp the sublety, then don't whine on due to your lack of understanding.

Hopefully they come up with a good ending and don't have to create an alternate ending because fans are so p!ssed off...
