Human Behavior - Do shy people feel less communication apprehension online? The effects of virtual reality on the The effects of virtual reality on the relationship between personality characterist... | VR & Simulations | Scoop.it

This study examines the effect of 3D virtual worlds on an individual’s communication experience in comparison with Face-to-Face communications (FtFCs). Using 2 × 2 posttest only group design where subjects were asked to discuss over a given topic. This study investigated whether individuals’ different personality characteristics (i.e. shyness) influence communication experiences (i.e. communication apprehension). The data suggest that shy individuals felt less of communication apprehension during the discussion conducted online than FtFC. On the other hand, FtFC turned out to be more effective in influencing individuals’ intention to change behavior compared to virtual worlds. The results suggest that lack of visual/auditory cues in virtual reality is the major factor that influenced the outcome.

Nik Pregelj's curator insight, March 20, 2013 1:57 AM

Oculus Rift, a brand new virtual reality headset. This headset immerses you completely in the game that you are playing with 110 degree field of view , once the headset is put on it feels as if you are actually standing right in the game, rather then just looking at a monitor or tv screen. A big step for augmented reality gaming in the future.The reality (mind the pun ;) ) of this technology being released to consumer's and being available at a reasonable price is a lot sooner then you think with dev kits being released as early as May 2013.
