The game console of the future will be a tiny box and a large connection to the cloud. Projections will illuminate across your living room, turning your furniture Pleasantville black-and-white to project the somber tone that the game detects from your heartbeat. "You are the controller" — but this is now more a medical distinction than it is a slogan. Intravenously entangled, from plasma to pixel. Welcome to the future. Let David Pierce, Nilay Patel, and Ross Miller be your guide.
