Beaming Into The Rat World (VIDEO)




Using cutting-edge virtual reality technology, researchers have ‘beamed’ a person into a rat facility allowing the rat and human to interact with each other on the same scale.
The human participant controls a rat-sized robot in a different location, while at the same a human-sized avatar represented the motions of the rat to the human participant through a virtual environment. The authors hope the new technology will be used to study animal behavior in a completely new way.
