Can distance perception be studied using virtual reality (VR) if distances are systematically underestimated in VR head-mounted displays (HMDs)? In an experiment in which a real environment was observed through an HMD, via live video, distances, as measured by visually directed walking, were underestimated even when the perceived environment was known to be real and present. However, the underestimation was linear, which means that higher-order space perception effects might be preserved in VR… CONTINUE READING
