Body Extension Experiment

In this part we want to discuss the possibility of extending sense of touch and dislocation on human body. We mapped the distance between the physical hands and leapmotion into a larger range and in the virtual world player will see that his arms can reach, say, 6 meters far. And if we put the player in front of a physical wall and make him stretch out his hands and touch the wall, at the same time there is another virtual wall 6 meters away and he can touch that wall also. So visually what he sees is synchronized with the touch sense but to some extent he feel dislocated about how long his arms are in the physical world.
