OBJECTIVE Two experiments examined whether prior interaction within an immersive virtual environment (VE) enabled people to improve the accuracy of their distance judgments and whether an improved ability to estimate distance generalized to other means of estimating distances. BACKGROUND Prior literature has consistently found that users of immersive VEs underestimate distances by approximately 50%. METHOD In each of the two experiments, 16 participants viewed objects in an immersive VE and… CONTINUE READING
