VRkele

“Ja juna kulkee vaan… Kulkisikin! Lehtikeli, pakkaskeli, lämmin keli, loskakeli, syitä junien myöhästelyyn tuntuu riittävän yhtä monta kuin on junan odottelun takia hukkaan heitettyjä minuuttejakin. […] Niinpä kehitimme sivuston, jonne jokainen voi tulla kertomaan, kauanko tänään seisoi laiturilla odottamassa.”

Virtual reality tackles tough questions

Virtual reality is allowing scientists to ask difficult questions about human behaviour that were previously not possible or were thought too unethical.
A Spanish team has designed a trial that allows men to step inside the body of a woman subjected to violence. Meanwhile scientists in London are simulating a controversial experiment from the 1960s in which people were persuaded to inflict pain on others.
