Experts in virtual reality locomotion have developed a new resource that analyses all the different possibilities of locomotion currently available. Moving around in a virtual reality world can be very different to walking or employing a vehicle in the real world and new approaches and techniques are continually being developed to meet the challenges of different applications.

The advance, researchers say, is like the discovery of the Rosetta stone and could eventually lead to new treatments for diseases The advance, researchers say, is like the discovery of the Rosetta stone and could eventually lead to new treatments for diseases UCLA life scientists have identified six "words" that specific immune cells use to call up immune defense genes — an important step toward understanding the language the body uses to marshal responses to threats.
