Hearing Immersive Interface

A hearing immersive interface is an interface of any type which completely eclipses the user?s own sense of sound. It might be considered as simple as binaural headphones which block out all external sound, or cochlear devices which process sound, receiving their input from another source. A hearing immersive interface?s use results in the only sounds the user is capable of hearing, being those coming from the virtual environment the interface is connected to.

Virtual Environment For Dentistry - VDITS
The Virtual Dental Implant Training Simulation Program or VDITS is designed to help students in diagnostics, decision making and treatment protocols. However, its use is ultimately limited because VDITS is a fishbowl VR interface, not an immersive one - it expects participation via monitor screen, mouse and keyboard, rather than a full on virtual experience, at least at this stage.

The Human Brain has a Network Backbone
An unexpected discovery of a hierarchical networking scaffold inside the human brain itself, has interesting implications for future neuroprosthetics.
