Description
In the film Captain America: Civil War, Tony Stark introduces a device called B.A.R.F. (Binarily Augmented Retro Framing) which can be fit into a pair of glasses.  The device then “hijacks the hippocampus” to not only capture and project memories, but alter them to the user’s pleasure. Tony specifically uses the device to re-experience and change his last interaction with his parents before their unexpected death. B.A.R.F. essentially re-creates a traumatic memory from one's past and offers the chance to experience closure.
