comment Can the Philosophy thought game “The experience machine” be answered by Positive Psychology?
However, Nozick primarily defined the experience machine as something that could control the input to the brain: "Superduper neuropsychologists could stimulate your brain so that you would think and feel you were writing a great novel, or making a friend, or reading an interesting book. All the time you would be floating in a tank, with electrodes attached to your brain." That we all could live in a state of eternal bliss if we had access to machines that could manipulate our brains to be in any state we desired seems trivial.

comment Cheapest way to measure arousal levels
The effects I will be looking for might appear within a time frame of half, or a quarter, of a second and I will be recording for 20-30 minutes per participant. I don't think I have it in me to write down 4 results per second for half an hour :)

Seems interesting. I will check it out! However, this won't do for my experiment, since my participants will be seated and just look at a monitor. That is; there won't be very much movement to record in the first place.

Well, I need something that records straight to the computer during an experiment, and it needs to be really accurate, so recording something with pen and paper will not do (that is, that method does not satisfy requirement b above). To bad you can't connect the GSR meter you linked to to a computer via USB, because it would be perfect!
