Abstract:

  • Innovative virtual technologies foreshadow new ways of discovering worlds through simulations as well as new forms of interaction. New virtuals societies and spaces, populated by hybrid beings associating human beings and digital entities in which they will be able to incarnate, bring us a new form of bodily and cognitive symbiosis and of inter-dependence which pushes us to ask ourselves and push us to wonder how we will manage to exist and last in these new worlds that we simulate. The use of the avatar represented in the 3rd person, as a point of view and a vector of embodiment and immersion, has many advantages when evolving in a virtual environment. The external point of view offers a better perception of the environment allowing the development of new use cases for the production of VR applications. Also, an avatar allows us to obtain visual feedback and a cognitive analysis of the actions we perform in the virtual world. This form of avatarization allows the materialization of the double of oneself, being able to make the self-image evolve, thanks to the mirror neurons (Rizzolatti & al., 2006), by linking perception and action (Berthoz, 2004, 2005)
