The ACME project, perhaps unfortunately named similar to the cartoon company that produces zany inventions, is actually a collaboration between the VTT Technical Research Centre of Finland, IBM Research and Nokia Research. It is a serious attempt at bringing disparate technologies together to form something we have all desired for a long while - an interoperable environment in which physical and virtual mix (almost) seamlessly.
In order to appreciate the true majesty of any virtual environment, you require the most apt hardware for displaying sensory data that you can afford. For the most part, this article is directed towards home uses of VR. The home user with a seven-year-old office computer, who can barely access a modern virtual environment, lagged to death and not understanding why.
An article from the BBC, providing empiric evidence that gaming and virtual worlds foster community colloboration, rather than creating a network of loners.
A PDF released by Microsoft Research, entitled ?Demonstrating the Feasibility of Using Forearm Electromyography for Muscle-Computer Interfaces? details the science behind utilising muscle control as an alternative, viable input system to gesture recognition or spoken commands.

Empirical research from the University of Rochester in the US has found that playing in fast passed, lightning reaction virtual environments can be very good for your eyes.
Programming the Universe is a Simulation Argument book. Lloyd, a professor at MIT, works in the vanguard of research in quantum computing: using the quantum mechanical properties of atoms as a computer. He contends that the universe itself is one big quantum computer producing what we see around us, and ourselves, as it runs a cosmic program.
Brain Navigator is a type of single user virtual environment. Designed as an aide to research more than anything else, it understandably has a wide plethora of uses outside the academic fields.
In one of those uncommon times when space travel research and virtual reality development collide, the NASA bed rest study program is designed to observe the effects of staying in bed for long periods on healthy individuals. The VR angle is it is an excellent way to gather data about extended periods with the mind plumbed into a virtual reality environment with the body just?there.
The VALIDATE project, is a German efficiency initiative, funded by the German federal ministry of research, with the aim of using virtual reality simulation to train drivers on how to reduce fuel consumption and CO2 emissions.
In the wake of an increasing number of scare stories about the use of Wi-Fi, claiming they alter the brain, and should be banned from schools and public areas, this article from the BBC looks at the actual science - which shows them as safe - a thousand computer wi-fi network puts out less than a single mobile phone.
