monsters. but virtual reality is about to take immersion to the next level. developers out in a raised to make it even more realistic by incorporating more of our sensors like touch. the new buzzword is happy. we are picking something up with your hands, running your fingers over most of reaching out and shaking hands with someone else in the matter of us. virtual reality developers are working on making all v r experiences more immersive and thus more realistic. but this is no small feat, so there are a number of outstanding challenges. first and foremost is this optics. that is a fundamental issue because the way that we interact with the real world is, is driven by a server or sensory motion system. so we, we are actively gathering the information in the world are august to interactions and that those, the key thing will be our to the university of chicago is even looking into so

called chemical hap tics. this wearable contains an integrated mini pump which transmits chemical substances. under the skin that match a given d r experience, the researchers have identified to find substances that cause specific sensations, all of which is said to be homeless and small doses. for full body haptic feedback. company such as tesla, met an amazon on developing suits so that uses can feel touch force and thermal feedback on their entire body. this would make the on training more realistic and thus better at engaging on muscle memory. but it will still take a while before such suits become readily available. i imagine it probably will be a, we're a day where we are. we do have that's the reality of so body suits and so, and monte displays. but in a sort of teacher loud since everybody devices a pro b,

as in the short term solution to do b, b r one full body should, is the task lawsuit which provides tactile feedback through electrical stimulation . it can even recreate the feeling of rain on skin or temperatures, arranging from $20.00 to $40.00 degrees celsius. that's pretty incredible, but the suit also caused several 1000 euros. a cheap option. i have to gloves, like the ones being developed by meta. these simulate the feeling of pressure on your skin, which isn't just useful for playing games, but even without have takes current v. r is already impressive. so long as you have the right equipment. games are still the largest market for v r and right now, 40 gains in which a player can move freely in the room or especially popular warmth, wind, smell, and object directions make the v r illusion. especially convincing. but b,

real world and virtual world information. through all senses. for example, all hippocampus is involved in spatial navigation. it creates cognitive maps that help us understand our surroundings. thus far via has been a primarily visual experience. dizziness image dark says this site is the most important to us and it would be much of our brain is dedicated to processing visual information, which is why it's normally enough to create primarily visual environments auditing . supposed. but every one knows a real experience involves more and bouts of our brain receives input from all of our sensors and looking at combines issues of cuts. examine how our brain reacts to viani strongly depends on how many of our senses us did. studies on rats showed that when they were placed in sympathy, all surroundings only 40 percent of than euro pathways were active compared to real life. the more realistic, the v r experience, the more similar the brain activity became. in an experiment where rats were put on

the, our treadmills, their brain activity closely resembled brain patterns they have when they run on treadmills in real life. this shows that the more immersive, the experience, the better our in response. if what we hear, taste, touch and smell doesn't match what we're seeing in via then the experience feels less real and will also learn less well. nonetheless, the brain does trying to process the are similarly to how it would really experiences my, the from the shits and he, most of you and get him out of the brain. patterns are actually quite similar. that is, so a feeling of anxiety is process pretty much the same in a virtual anna that when and the real world from fear to gratification the physiological responses resemble each other. oh, trait increase is skin conduct to the changes. a bodies release hormones and
