Touch, See & Hear: Senseparation
The interdisciplinary and experimental joint project of the University of Art and Design Linz, Ludwig-Maximilians-University Munich and the Leibniz Supercomputing Centre is presented at Ars Electronica 2014
The interdisciplinary and experimental joint project focuses on the cross-border networking of people between virtual and real space. An encounter between two people takes place at different locations. Tactile, visual and auditory sensory perception are separated and therefore amplified in order to initiate an encounter. By means of an avatar, the user in virtual reality is able to interact with the person in the real space. In return, the person in the real space is able to perceive the other person with tactile and auditory senses.
