Taro Maeda

  • Bioinformatic Engineering

Theme

Virtual Reality Cybernetics - Cybernetics

As one can see into immersive experiences as tele-existence and virtual reality (such as remote control of reality), human consciousness is connected to the world solely by information mediated by human body. By studying interface technology to connect senses and movements electronically and information wise, I conduct researches to develop a new intuitive interface technology to assist and extend body functions of human himself, by elucidating the mechanisms of movement and human perception.
