The Machine to Be Another

A powerful use of the Oculus Rift to enable people to feel (somewhat) what it’s like to be another person. The only limitation, and I’m not entirely convinced that is a limitation, is the need to choreograph movements. The symmetrical movement helps to reinforce proprioception, the internal sense of your body in space and the hinge for the whole project, but it feels.. a bit artificial.
