Thats because the MIT Media Lab has created the WoW Pod, a small shack designed for World Of Warcraft fanatics that provides all of lifes needs, including food, water, a kitchenette, and bathroom, so a gamer never has to stop playing.
Co-creator Cati Vaucelle says, It gives you all you need for a good, non-stop raid!
A players WoW avatar keeps track of their human counterparts physical needs so they dont fully surrender to the fantasy by reminding them to ingest some sustenance.
Vaucelle doesnt think any players will forego all reality and actually live their entire lives in the Pod, but thinks theyd want to have it as a cocoon where they can fully experience the game and escape the world to their hearts content.
