Non-Immersive VR

A non-immersive reality is one in which only a subset of senses are subsumed, or the senses are only partially subsumed.

This leaves peripheral awareness of the reality outside the VR, as direct sensory perception.

For example, whilst your eyes and ears may be in the simulation, your toe is still feeling the desk in front of it.
