Wagner James Au writes: “Philip Rosedale aims to achieve extremely low latency to improve avatar-to-avatar interactions in his new Oculus Rift-compatible High Fidelity virtual world; but it’s not just a matter of shortening ping time — he’s also working with a neuroscientist and 3D brain scans to improve that experience too”.
Rosedale explains: “”We’re interested in whether there are neurological signals that are visible either to EEG and/or fMRI that can help design High Fidelity by showing us how to bridge the gap between the face-to-face experience and the avatar-to-avatar one.”
