Surrogates future war
by Critical Commons Manager `

In this ironic reversal of the concept of a "theater of war," soldier-avatars are controlled remotely from a warehouse-sized room full of video monitors and high speed connections. While the warfare itself resembles a conventional 20th century battlefield, the interface between human controller and surrogate avatars is entirely neurological - i.e., without physical or manual operations of any kind.

This Commentary is related to the following Clips:
Surrogates future war by Jonathan Mostow (2009) In Surrogates, warfare is carried out by human-controlled mechanical avatars
