Kinaesthesis Immersion Interface

One of the hardest immersive interfaces to create would be a kinaesthesis immersive interface. Often referred to as proprioception, kinaesthesis is the awareness of the positions of all muscles and joints in the body, based on muscle tension, and touch stimulus.

A kinaesthesis immersion interface ? or a proprioceptive immersion interface as it would also be known, would have to supplant all of that muscle awareness, with information manufactured relative to the avatar?s bodily position in a VR.

The Senses of Total Immersion
Total immersion in an alternate reality is as old as the human race. Quite possibly they are even older than that. Dream realities, fantasies, campsite stories, the world of a good book.

Virtual Voice: Ultimate RolePlaying Hook
In roleplaying, nothing breaks immersion more than hearing the voice of the player when its not appropriate for the role. The voice of a 10 year old girl coming from the troll about to smack you into next week, or a butch, and manly seductress just breaks immersion entirely. Either online roleplay should be limited to just text whilst everything else goes voice, or a new approach is required.

An unexpected discovery of a hierarchical networking scaffold inside the human brain itself, has interesting implications for future neuroprosthetics. Rather than having to interface with the grey matter right where computations are being done, we may in fact only have to interface with the white matter 'between departments' as it were, to achieve the same interface effect.
