Presence of Mind:A Reaction to Thomas Sheridan's Further Musings on the Psychophysics of Presence

  title={Presence of Mind:A Reaction to Thomas Sheridan's Further Musings on the Psychophysics of Presence},
  author={Stephen R. Ellis},
  journal={Presence: Teleoperators & Virtual Environments},
An operators' sense of remote presence during teleoperation or use of virtual environment interfaces is analyzed as to what characteristics it should have to qualify it as an explanatory scientific construct. But the implicit goal of designing virtual environment interfaces to maximize presence is itself questioned in a second section in which examples of human—machine interfaces beneficially designed to avoid a strong sense of egocentric presence are cited. In conclusion, it is argued that the… CONTINUE READING
