Crowdsourcing sites like Amazon's Mechanical Turk are increasingly being used by researchers to construct "virtual labs" in which they can conduct behavioral experiments. In this talk, I describe some recent experiments that showcase the advantages of virtual over traditional physical labs, as well as some of the limitations. I then discuss how this relatively new experimental capability may unfold in the near future, along with some implications for social and behavioral science.
