Ha, yeah that is more like the low priority/jail type solution though. It is an interesting one, but you run the risk that some people learn from each other rather than reforming. Or at least reinforcing that this is normal behaviour because everyone is doing it . r n r ...

FOV can play a big role in simulation sickness, both in and out of VR, as it changes how much of the edges of vision are being stimulated which is where our vision is quite sensitive to motion . You could change FOV in VR as well, but you will ...

I agree that the idea of misleading messages is supposed to be one part of the system, but in my whole playthrough I only came upon one misleading message and it was really obvious - and I was checking a lot. Maybe I got lucky. But at the very least ...

Hi Kim, r n r ...

Hi Kim, r n r nThanks for the comment. I am glad you enjoyed the post. I do mention latency, but you are right that it is a very important issue and also one that Oculus has been rightly very vocal and active about. As for accommodation and convergence, you ...

The changes they have made with this prototype should have good gains in terms of reducing simulation sickness. Particularly steps they have taken to deal with motion blur. Can 't wait to try one.

Texting does not appear to trigger oxytocin release r n r nDo you have a citation for this statement I would be very interested to read such a study, because if this is true it would be a surprise to me. Perhaps you meant to phrase this as less of ...

Ian is correct that SDT does spend quite a lot of time talking about the difference between controlling praise and non-controlling praise. With, as Ian says, non-controlling praise supposedly being the one that doesn 't decrease motivation. SDT also makes a distinction between expected vs unexpected praise or any ' ...

The information above says 355 kids and the linked report says 500 kids. r n r nAll the data in the report also seems to be single purchases. Interesting, but for free to play I would think that repeat purchase habits are more important. r n r nEdit: the below ...

I am not sure that really high def screens are needed for immersion for a large proportion of the population. There are plenty of low fidelity simulators used in research and such that are not graphically stunning but are very immersive. I have personally seen participants throw their hands up ...

Hey Nils, r n r nI am not sure I am that jazzed with the term awards instead of rewards awards sounds a bit merit badgey and, for me, doesn 't capture much intent but at the same time I am not sure that it is an argument that is ...
