Experience Relativity Firsthand In MIT Video Game That Slows The Speed Of Light

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 walking speed.

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.
