Team-Bunraku:Improvement of immersion feeling in virtual reality

Virtual reality needs real-time rendering. But the virtual images may sometimes look “too synthetic” or “too perfect” and provide a weak immersion feeling. We carry out experiments to improve the immersion feeling. Visual-Spatial Learners. Linda Kreger Silverman.

Visual-Spatial Learners

Ph.D. Welcome to the wonderful world of the visual-spatial learner! We’re excited to share with you information about this important learning style, and to share with you about recognizing, assessing, teaching, counseling and living with visual-spatial learners. Many teachers try very hard to accommodate the various learning styles of their students, but this can be an overwhelming task, as some of the learning styles inventories and models are quite complicated. As a former classroom teacher myself, I know that there are a limited number of hours in the day, and even the most dedicated teacher cannot plan for all the different learning styles and intelligences of his or her students. The main difference between the two groups was that highly gifted children also excelled at the auditory-sequential items, whereas children who were brighter than their IQ scores had marked auditory and sequential weaknesses. How your brain sees virtual you - life - 06 November 2009. As players who stay up all night fighting imaginary warriors demonstrate, slipping into the skin of an avatar, and inhabiting a virtual world can be riveting stuff.

Brain Has an Innate Sense of Geometry - USC News. Scientists study how the brain thinks about virtual avatars. This is fascinating stuff to think about over the weekend -- New Scientist has an article (sent to us by quite a few readers -- thanks!)

Scientists study how the brain thinks about virtual avatars

About how we perceive our virtual selves in video games like World of Warcraft. A group of scientists at Dartmouth University hooked a few WoW players up to an MRI recently, and they found that when asked to describe themselves and their virtual avatars, the same areas of the brain activated -- areas normally suited to "self-reflection and judgement.

" In other words, you think about your avatar the same way you think about yourself. They found nearly no difference in the way the brain activated when subjects considered themselves and their avatars. But when you make the split between virtual and real worlds (including your friends in both), the brain's center for imagination tends to light up whenever you consider the virtual world. Like I said, fascinating stuff. Filed under: Analysis / Opinion, Fan stuff, Virtual selves, Odds and ends. How Technology Wires the Learning Brain. Kids between the ages of 8 and 18 spend 11.5 hours a day using technology — whether that’s computers, television, mobile phones, or video games – and usually more than one at a time.

How Technology Wires the Learning Brain

That’s a big chunk of their 15 or 16 waking hours. But does that spell doom for the next generation? Not necessarily, according to Dr. Gary Small, a neuroscientist and professor at UCLA, who spoke at the Learning & the Brain Conference last week. “Young people are born into technology, and they’re used to using it 24/7,” Small said. “The technology train has left. The downside of such immersion in technological devices, he said, is that they’re not having conversations, looking people in the eye, or noticing verbal cues. But that’s not the headline here. Video games, for example, aren’t just about repetitive tasks – many of them have built-in social components that allow kids to communicate. Effects of immersion on short term spatial memory. Magnetbrenda. 051. 30-ACADIA. Journal. Slick implies a certain type of legitimacy and virtual reality is slick like wet ice. Location It was the location that attracted my attention. Réalité virtuelle : l'immersion passe aussi par la mimétisation.

Manipuler des objets avec des mains virtuelles qui ressemblent aux siennes plutôt qu'avec des curseurs rend les participants plus réactifs et plus impliqués à l'expérience qui leur est proposée.

Réalité virtuelle : l'immersion passe aussi par la mimétisation

Les candidats à une expérience de réalité virtuelle sont plus à mêmes de se prêter au jeu s'ils peuvent y retrouver un élément de leur corps auquel se référer. "Le corps virtuel est un composant important dans une expérience 4D, sa présence peut transformer de manière significative les actions du participant", affirme ainsi Anthony Steed, de l'university College of London, et qui a mené une étude sur le sujet. Un constat à prendre en compte par les entreprises qui s'intéressent à la réalité virtuelle pour mettre au point des modules de formation. Pour valider ce postulat, le chercheur a proposé à des volontaires de se plonger dans un environnement de réalité virtuelle. Burkhardt-et-al-psycho-fran-03. Virtual Reality - Future.

Virtual reality is, the projection upon the five senses artificial stimuli.

Virtual Reality - Future

This can be used to create illusions (imaginary worlds) that can be simulated on a computer. Various technologies, especially computer games that utilize VR will incrementally reshape how we view society. Definition "The ultimate dream is to merge the real world and the virtual world into a totally seamless experience" -- PhotoSynth project Development of simulation, rendering, VR input and output technologies will have wider implications than just better virtual environments.
