Your 4D Goggles, New Video Experience
University of California researchers have created 4D goggles that have the ability to make entertainment content 4-dimensional. Meaning, more immersive through multi-sensory experience.
UC San Diego Discovery
UC San Diego neuroscientists developed 4D goggles. They can be synchronized with entertainment content like movies, music, games and virtual reality to greatly enhance the experience. They bring immersive, multisensory effects near to the face to deliver the feeling of really being there.
This is fascinating research. The 4D goggles allow viewers to feel, during a movie, a slight touch when an object like a spacecraft is approaching. To do this with the 4D goggles, the neuroscientists mapped brain areas that integrate the sight and touch of a looming object. That aided their understanding of the perceptual and neural mechanisms of multisensory integration and how more than a dozen brain areas were found to respond more strongly. Much more to come on this amazing tech.
