Immersive interface

Any immersive interface is defined as one which totally eclipses one or more senses of the user into the virtual environment. For example a HMD that blocks out external light, is a visual immersive interface; binaural headphones which block out all external sound are a hearing immersive interface, and so on.

The ultimate immersive interface will be one which completely eclipses all sensory channels, such as the virtual world is presented as fundamentally sensorilly real as the physical world, with no subjective way to tell them apart.

Virtual Environment For Dentistry - VDITS
The Virtual Dental Implant Training Simulation Program or VDITS is designed to help students in diagnostics, decision making and treatment protocols. However, its use is ultimately limited because VDITS is a fishbowl VR interface, not an immersive one - it expects participation via monitor screen, mouse and keyboard, rather than a full on virtual experience, at least at this stage.

The Human Brain has a Network Backbone
An unexpected discovery of a hierarchical networking scaffold inside the human brain itself, has interesting implications for future neuroprosthetics. Rather than having to interface with the grey matter right where computations are being done, we may in fact only have to interface with the white matter 'between departments' as it were, to achieve the same interface effect.
