Simply put, what is the strongest emotional response (reaction) you've ever had to a game? It's something that's always fascinated me, how an artificial environment and beings can stimulate actual physical emotions in people. And it's something that just isn't in many games - we have characters with tragic backgrounds, origins, and actions, but we aren't investing in them. They're jut abstract levels of background that developers include to justify their world and the words that vomit from the mouths of NPCs. What do you think are the most crucial elements needed in order for the player to 'feel' the game?
(Phys.org)—In 1975, Swedish physicist Göran Lindblad developed a theorem that describes the change in entropy that occurs during a quantum measurement. Today, this theorem is a foundational component of quantum information theory, underlying such important concepts as the uncertainty principle, the second law of thermodynamics, and data transmission in quantum communication systems.
A large number of previous studies have shown that egocentric depth perception tends to be underestimated in virtual reality (VR) - objects appear smaller and farther away than they should. Various theories as to why this might occur have been investigated, but to date the cause is not fully understood. A much smaller number of studies have investigated how depth perception operates in augmented reality (AR), and some of these studies have also indicated a similar underestimation effect. In this paper we report an experiment that further investigates these effects. The experiment compared VR and AR conditions to two real-world control conditions, and studied the effect of motion parallax across all conditions. Our combined VR and AR head-mounted display (HMD) allowed us to develop very careful calibration procedures based on real-world calibration widgets, which cannot be replicated with VR-only HMDs. To our knowledge, this is the first study to directly compare VR and AR conditions as part of the same experiment.

Algorithms increasingly guide our daily life: Google’s ranking algorithm pretty much decides which pages we visit, and therefore which information we access; Amazon’s algorithm influences which books we read; dating algorithms decide your sexual life and possibly your marriage; the smartphone’s navigation algorithm decides which streets we take; Yelp’s algorithm decides where we eat (and it is a simple average!)
