sensory inputs like temperature to enrich mixed reality experiences. Through this experience the
participant is witnessing a constant passage from the real world to virtual and vice versa.
The participant, who wears a VR casque is immersed in a dark room. He cannot see anything around him. Unless he touches the real walls of his surrounding, he will be trapped in this dark room.
