Virtual Reality Cocoon

Virtual Reality Cocoon
Virtual Reality is a technology in which we interact with computer in a simulated environment. The simulated environment can be real world, e.g. simulations for pilot or VR games. This technology has revolutionized the way of interaction with computers in visual as well as in sound effects as sensory systems.
The Virtual Reality Cocoon is a Walk-in pad being developed by NAU, an International design collective that aims to revolutionize the way we interact with the computers. This is in the design stage, whet it is completed, it looks like a DOME with a 360 degree display screen and surround sound effect.
Normally mouse or joystick will be used to interact with screen where as this immersive cocoon is designed with a tracking cameras will follow the movement of the arms, legs, face, walking and jumping.
NAU says,"It is completely different from me sitting in front of a screen, looking at a little picture and typing something in -- almost like the experience is reduced to my brain and my fingers. In the Cocoon we have the whole body immersed inside."
By this Virtual Reality environment, we can do 3D shopping as Virtual shoppers, for example

"Imagine Amazon.com being fully 3D. We could walk through a 3D space where you have all the books lined up, and you could walk right up to a book," he says.

Really exciting is it? Wait till Oct 2009, to interact with this environment.
