Transcript of Virtual Reality
Virtual reality is a technology which encompasses one of your senses (usually vision) completely to fool your brain into believing you are submersed in a virtual environment.
Pros and Cons
- Being able to virtually tour places from your home
- Risk-free learning
- Causes temporary motion sickness
- Long-term health effects unknown (mental and physical)
Hype Curve - Slope of Enlightenment
Autism and Simulators: A Case Study
-A brief history of virtual reality and ASD therapy
New avenue for learning
Surgery simulators will be of immense value to medical field
Simulators for flying and driving provide risk-free learning environment
Eventual installation in libraries means unprecedented access to learning tools (particularily for those with disbilities)
- Repeatable and controlled environment
- Reduction of competing sensory stimuli
- Automated environmental adaptation
to autonomic nervous system responses
Benefits of Virtual
Social Interaction Simulation
