marshmallow laser feast or perception and perspective

Though these human hikers might look like members of Daft Punk lost in the forest, donning their moss-covered virtual reality helmets, fed from a variety of sources and with a perception-enhancing range, these guests are attempting to experience the environment more as the residents do.

As senses go, human ones are pretty narrow but these augmenters first expands one’s horizons through sight and sound, magnifying and increasing the visible spectrum, culled from remote sensing and aerial footage as well, and then rather shamanistically puts the wearers through the rounds of the point of views of various woodland denizens. Check out a video at the link that demonstrates how the virtual reality experience has matured and hints at the invisible worlds it could reveal.
