If skin is our interface to the physical world, it must also be our interface to the digital world in order for one to feel fully immersed. To go from being an observer to an active participant, a person must be able to feel the world they are entering and feel the transition into it.The focus in this exhibit is primarily on the physical transition into the virtual world, the feeling of crossing an imaginary threshold into a computer simulated environment. Beyond this transition, the suit would also be capable of facilitating two way interactions with virtual objects or people—be that for entertainment, communication, virtual prototyping or one of the many other potential applications.
