Huge Immersive Virtual Environment

Huge Immersive Virtual Environment, or HIVE, is a type of physical movement tracking VR interface, capable of tracking users as they wander through a large, empty building space, superimposing VR imagery on the user senses via worn, wireless interface rigs. The virtual environment represented is artificially constrained to match the physical space, to warn users of physical walls.

First created at Miami University, HIVE systems pre-date omnidirectional VR treadmills and were in their day, the only method available for relatively unconstrained movement in VR.

World Review: Taurius
World Review: Taurius welcome screen
Not every persistent, immersive virtual environment is geared for kids, or is even suitable for them. At the same time, adult does not have to mean sexual. Adult can simply be a nice, mature environment where friends can relax and interact.

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.

Augmenting Virtual Environments with Physical Stats
When you are engaged in a virtual recreation of a physical event, particularly sporting events, and you think you are getting quite good. It could be a huge boost to the ego, or a crippling slap, to find yourself suddenly competing with the world's greatest in that sport, using their latest data.

In the modern era of VoIP and face to face communication, we are in danger of losing the power of virtual reality in a kind of mixed reality system. For whatever reason: nationality, lisp, burr, mixed gender heritage or simply being half drunk or high at the time, the market for the voice you emit to be synthetic, to be virtual is huge, preserving the integrity of the virtual world, by keeping the purely physical out.

Book Quotes: Hypercards and File Transfers
Basically, a hypercard is a file. Not any type of file, but a file in general. Or, more specifically, it is a standardised object that represents a file in a 3D immersive environment. No different really than an icon. Tied to the data in the file, when a hypercard changes hands, the file changes computers.

Encoding smells in the Brain: A must for recreation?
Industry News

In early January 2008, a Rice University study published in the Journal of Neuroscience found that socioemotional meanings, including sexual ones, are conveyed in human sweat. This raises the question for immersive spaces, if such dynamic scents need to be synthetically reproduced to provide a firmer social environment in tele-mediation.
