Implications of spatial presence research - usability and ethics
As virtual reality technology differs from conventional media like television, radio and computer games by means of technology as well as by means of the states of experience this technology is able to induce, researchers have to consider if the development of new codes of con...

Building presence in heterogenous systems
This is a theoretical result. The result will affect to research societies but not as is produce business. The use potential however is high. The problem in PeLoTe is how to control multiple entities that are different. The PeLoTe system consists of two different layers: Ope...
