"This is not like TV only better," says Lenny Nero in the futuristic film Strange Days. "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". Lenny is touting to a potentional customer a technological wonder called "the wire". When the user places the device over her head, its sensors make contact with perceptual centers in her brain. In its recording mode, the wire captures the sense perceptions of the wearer; in its playback mode, it delivers these recorded perceptions to the wearer.
