Cross-modal Interfaces for Multi-sensorial VR and Human Augmentation
In the field of virtual reality (VR) research, the technologies for multi-sensorial feedbacks achieve a major breakthrough by utilizing cross-modal interactions. By changing sensory stimuli through only one modality with these technologies, retaining the impression from our experience can be modified significantly. These novel technologies have a great potential to change not only our perception, but also our behavior and cognition. In this talk, we discuss such novel techniques for enhancing human capabilities with multimodal VR techniques.
