TreeSense is a sensory virtual reality (VR) system that transforms its user into the form of a tree.
By tracking bodily movement and synchronizing the sounds, vibrations, temperatures, winds and scents of the virtual reality environment, TreeSense crafts an evocative illusion of inhabiting another, radically different body. By aspiring to create new levels of empathy through sensual experience, TreeSense uses technological advancements to foster our connection to nature.
