Improvement of immersion feeling in virtual reality Participants : Rémi Cozot, Sébastien Hillaire, Anatole Lécuyer [ contact ] . 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. 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.
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. But to what extent does your brain regard your virtual self as you? Brain scans of avid players of the hugely popular online fantasy world World of Warcraft reveal that areas of the brain involved in self-reflection and judgement seem to behave similarly when someone is thinking about their virtual self as when they think about their real one.
Brain Has an Innate Sense of Geometry - USC News
This is fascinating stuff to think about over the weekend -- New Scientist has an article (sent to us by quite a few readers -- thanks!) 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. Scientists study how the brain thinks about virtual avatars
Big Ideas Teaching Strategies Getty 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. That’s a big chunk of their 15 or 16 waking hours. But does that spell doom for the next generation?

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