Besides the visual perception in these artificial realities a full body experience becomes increasingly important. This embodiment lets the user immerse into a world that stimulates all senses and therefore is almost indistinguishable from our known reality. But virtual reality combined with an full body immersion, has the potential not only to simulate our known real world but also to create new ways of experiencing and interacting with the environment. To explore these potentials can also lead to new applications and a better understanding how we as individuals can interact in and with an artificial environment, which is going to have a growing impact in our daily life. The idea is not just to explore the boundaries and possibilities of such experiences but also try to capture the qualities of these.TutorsMax Rheiner, Prof. Jürgen Späth
