MetaSpace II

MetaSpace II is a social Virtual Reality system where multiple users can not only see and hear but also interact with each other, grasp and manipulate objects, walk around in space, and get tactile feedback. MetaSpace allows walking in physical space by tracking each user's skeleton in real-time and allows users to feel using passive haptics, i.e. when users touch or manipulate an object in the VR world, they simultaneously also touch or manipulate a corresponding object in the physical world. Each user also sees a full-body avatar that they control by their natural movements in the real world which greatly enhances sense of immersion and realism in VR.
