Keynote for VS Games 2013, Professor Adrian David Cheok

The VS Games 2013 conference I have posted in the past about will have two keynotes; one is from Adrian David Cheok, Professor at Keio University, Graduate School of Media Design, Japan. This is titled "Multisensory Feeling Communication in the Hyperconnected Era".

The abstract, taken from the website of the conference is the following; "This talk outlines new facilities that are arising in the hyperconnected internet era within human media spaces. This allows new embodied interaction between humans, species, and computation both socially and physically, with the aim of novel interactive communication and entertainment. Humans can develop new types of communication environments using all the senses, including touch, taste, and smell, which can increase support for multi-person multi-modal interaction and remote presence. In this talk, we present an alternative ubiquitous computing environment and space based on an integrated design of real and virtual worlds. We discuss some different research prototype systems for interactive communication, culture, and play."
