Simulating Hallucinations in Virtual Reality
When psychiatrists are facing mentally disturbed people, they often find difficult to understand their patients' hallucinations. This is why a multidisciplinary team of the University of Queensland in Australia has written a special software to help them and their patients. In "VR tool re-creates hallucinations," Technology Research News says that the hallucination simulation software is a three-dimensional environment, something like the game Quake.

This prototype system runs on a "large virtual reality system that includes three projectors and a 9-meters-wide by and 2.5-meters-high screen curved to provide a 150-degree field of view." The researchers are now porting this software on PC platforms in order to be used in individual clinicians' offices. Commercial applications should be ready within five years.

This overview provides other details and links to this project, including several computing images.
