When light slows to the speed of a stroll, things get very, very strange.
PopSci - Many have wondered (and theorized) what it would be like to travel at
the speed of light, but over at MIT’s Game Lab developers are
envisioning what it would be like if light moved at the speed of you. Through a new game, aptly titled A Slower Speed of Light,
game designers there have created a first-person prototype game in
which the speed of light slowly decelerates as the user progresses
through the game, bringing the effects of special relativity down to
A Slower Speed of Light is built on top of Game Lab’s own
custom-built, open-source relativistic game engine imbued with all of
the strange effects of relativity. But rather than taking the user up to
the speed of light, where these effects would be far easier observed,
the game brings the speed of light down to the user.
