Second Life - research area

I’m interested in exploring the stimulation of senses in virtual world. I believe emotion is one important factor in linking the physical and the virtual world, and sensory contact is the key to generate emotions. With emotions enable, living in virtual world can be just as convincing as real life.

recently, the idea of a virtual reality headset that can stimulates all 5 senses has been proposed by British scientists.

“Users of the new virtual reality headset will be able to hear roaring lions while on a virtual safari, smell the flowers of an Alpine meadow or feel the heat of the Caribbean sun on their face - all from the comfort of their chair. ”
