Wired.com had an article about a new nasal spray a few days go that is currently being tested on monkeys that supposedly can keep you awake up to 36 hrs. Although thats nothing new, the big breakthrough here is two fold. One, there were no recorded side effects experienced by the monkeys. Two and more importantly it keeps you alert and calm, the monkeys didn’t experience any hyper activity or gitters like caffeine or sugar give you.
Although it’s a few years away before it becomes available, it’s interesting to see how this could have a huge affect on gamers. You’ve already heard about gamers playing 30-40 hrs marathon sessions, some even dying afterwards, but what if these gamers could play for 40 hrs and feel 100%? You might soon be hearing about 100 hrs gaming sessions. Scary thought.
