Scientific and Technical Prospects

Abstract : This chapter offers a view of future technical and scientific prospects, related to major evolutions in use. It explains the impact of technological advances on applications in the entertainment field and, more generally, on the use of VR‐AR by the general public. The chapter then discusses the potential of brain‐computer interactions (BCI). It explains the working principle of BCIs and analyzes the possibilities opened up by alternative perception mechanisms for interactions in virtual reality (VR). The chapter looks at how user perceptions can be altered in VR using pseudo‐sensory feedback. Finally, it shows that it is possible to generate illusions of movement for an immobile user by altering their movement in VR, and thus overcoming the current limitations of VR technology related to movement in the VE.
