our digital magazine show shift looks at the latest in virtual reality technology. and of course, remember, you can always get the latest news on our website. that is d w dot com. i'm monica jones santa. i will be back at the top of the hour with the latest news for me and the team in the meantime. thanks for watching. these places in europe are smashing all the records. stepped into a bold adventure. it's the treasure map for modern globetrotters. discover some of you up to record breaking sites on google maps. you too. and now also in book form. i'm agreeing with. do you feel worried about the planning me to a meal?

host of the on the green fence, both cost and to me it's clear. we need to change the solutions are out there. join me for a deep dive into the green transformation for me to do, for the family. ah, hanging out at the beach without needing to book a flight or hotel. sounds pretty go drive. especially if you could actually feel the water and sand a futuristic dream. well, not necessarily how good is varieties days. that's our topic on shift today. ah, shoot. most of you know that with we are headsets, you can virtually flow through space or kill launched us. but at virtual reality is about take immersion to the next level. developers 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 or 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 massive and thus more realistic. but this is no small feat, so 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 the sensory motion system. so we, we are actively gathering the information from the world around as to interactions . and that is the key thing will be our to the university of chicago is even

looking into so called chemical hap, takes. 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 to 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 to for such suits, become readily available. i imagine it probably will be a day where we do have that's the reality of so body suit sensor and match it displays. but in the civil teacher loud since everybody devices are probably, this is short term solution to do
4:19 pm
b. and b r one full body shoot is the tass lawsuit which provides tactile feedback through electoral 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 sued also costs several $1000.00 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 ap, thanks. 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, snell, and object directions make the v. r illusion special. convincing but v r can be used for much more, such as a museum visit, include stepping right into
4:20 pm
a painting or a virtual vacation. in spite of pandemic travel restrictions. you can claim the famous whitman to the matter or bungee jump of a new york statue of liberty. and there are certain sort of experiences that you can get you in a virtual world that would be impossible and any otherwise. and those that's where i think this is an entertainment service. betty b r is a real sort of game changer getting master into a world you otherwise would not have access to vcr and e. r technology are becoming more interesting for other fields. in areas such as medicine, the tech is playing an ever larger part in education and training. v r is especially useful for practicing rear procedures or emergency responses, such as a fire in a tunnel. the russian academy of sciences even simulated an entire mission using
4:21 pm
beyond the real value of the training that you, you get to experience situations that might happen very rally on the never happen in your life. so for example, senior meeting raster social cases that perhaps a surgeon my own, yet a lot greater unless, if you're able to simulate, you improve infinity is a, is, is going to be a game changer for, for healthcare. practicing operations and v r is clearly useful, but how well do surgeons learned in vietnam? what actually happens in our brain when we are in a virtual world? and what other effects does be i have on the body, our brains process, real world and virtual world information. through all senses. for example,
4:22 pm
our 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 you know, 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 . suppose, but every one knows a real experience involves more involved in our brain receives input from all of our senses and liquor combines, if you see the cuts, examine how my brain reacts to viani strongly depends on how many of all senses osteo 8 it 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, our experience, the more similar the brain activity became. in an experiment where rats were put on the, our treadmills,
4:23 pm
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 try to process v all similarly to how it would really experiences my definition. 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 a rewards center is activated, virtual reality can be fun. oh,
4:24 pm
and diety inducing. there are other ways to make the are more immersive, cambria meadows new mixed reality had said inter, what's built in front cameras, these film, the real world, and mix it with the virtual one, which can be useful for things like if you want to quickly write something down without removing that had said i tracking is also being used more and more for this special senses inside the head said, track where the user is looking. this has a number of advantages. ah, i contact is no possible between avatars and the mit reverse. thanks to the latest the are headset which track users i'm with the headsets use harmless, infrared light to ascertain where user is looking. the addition means, avatars can make eye contact. plus, operating menus are aiming at objects can now be done with eye movement saloon via
4:25 pm
the i tracking tech. should also help speed up your gain graphics. oh no. is it human either this or that? the vision is a low resolution. so you can approximate a computing policy, dr. brenda, the full virtual. well, you can get render where the user is lacking a rendering right now e, i can't reliably predict where user the next. so currently little computing time is being seen. however, it looks like that could soon change in, so i tracking is useful, but it also has downsize, our eyes produce highly sensitive data, which can be saved, analyzed, and sold research to say our agenda, age, weight, and even personality trades can be gleaned from i data was more they want the data can be used to predict our emotional state drug consumption habits,
4:26 pm
skills and sexual preferences. plus, that's another problem. this tech is affected by ethnicity and it's been found to be less good, a tracking asian people's eyes. we know definitely much of the research happens in western educated industrialized reach other countries. i'm not biased for when you're trying to develop a technology that is medications for months yet lot one body pod that the audio help us long overlooked our legs. there was no affordable leg tracking device for a long time, but that recently changed thanks. also to kick started campaigns even once expensive the od treadmills on now somewhat affordable these b r shoes are called act to one. they're still just a prototype, but they are the only shoes you can walk through the metaphors. well, almost moon walking in real life. the shoes server motors go in the opposite direction to keep them crashing to
4:27 pm
a real wall. the so called cyber, she take a different approach. we were develop the help of the crowd funding for just a few 100 years more. you can get the swivel chair to get the feel comfortable. i'll be unexpected. with that in the metaphor. serious v. r gamers, me also be interested in treadmills. they provide a different level of immersion. and they're also much more expensive with a price tag of around $1200.00 youth. best in consensus tracking movement and your security to avoid being injured in real life while you're in p r. for those who can't afford or don't have space for treadmill, there's the slain vcr full body tracker. is much cheaper option is probably the best value for money. that user should know. it doesn't stop you. so you may want
4:28 pm
to be weary of wealth. but be careful because be our home accidents are now a thing in the u. k. the insurance company, aviva said the average b r related claim for accidental damage was around 800 euros, think smashed tv sets, and they have also been serious injuries. clearly me, our safety isn't really safe yet. but what do you think? do you have a favorite via devise a one you'd like to see develop? do you think other dangers are bigger or do you not care about v r and prefer to focus on real life as no one youtube or by email by and see you soon? ah, the ah,

enter the conflict zone with sebastian fresh allegation bluffing, poor food, mud cranium pavilion outside of rapidly found no way to do anything about russia. really care what the world? goodbye the invasion. i guess if we go to perform a deputy permit, i'm very few other conflicts on next. on d, w for a. 2 mom is pulling the plug, there's nothing you can do about it. a mysterious illness, m e d i. 2 it affects millions of people around the world. there is no cure, no. 2 treatment, no medication, the people being left behind and the crew reality of living with any cfs. 45 minutes on d w. how about taking a few risks?
4:30 pm
you could even take a chance on the low raring to, ah, don't expect a happy ending. literature list 100 germany with fresh allegations with russian forces murder, ukrainian, civilians outside key f, have rapidly found their way to the un general assembly. 93 countries voted to suspend russia from the un human rights council. a humiliating move of moscow immediately condemned as illegitimate and politically motivated. but as russia really care what the world thinks about its invasion, my guest this week from moscow as the former deputy foreign minister andre.
