Immersion & Presence  -   웃   XR   VR   MR.
Swerve has been taking deep dives into immersion & presence for a few decades..
We are referring to both the direct experiential aspect of immersion & presence,...
and how technology is converging to allow for this, via various screens, including VR  MR  &  AR.
The visual quality of VR headsets/goggles from a number of companies is getting very compelling. 
Meta, Apple, Sony, HTC, Valve, Varjo & others. 
We'll be posting a bit of a deeper dive about all of the above, over the next while..
To clarify, the 'direct experiential' referred to above, refers to one's ability to be aware. Period.
Mindfulness and awareness practices allow for one to go deeper into this,
on one's own, or when wearing VR headsets.
Being aware of the natural quiet mind, when thoughts come to rest, is a compelling and natural experience.
In a way, it's very simple and accessible.
The clarity, calm, compassion and inner strength that comes from this can be useful in one's daily life,
and beneficial for people with a range of health conditions, including very challenging health conditions.

This a conceptual prototype of the Therapeutic Dawn virtual retreat space, and Swerve.Land virtual studio.
The deck, table, candles and landscape in the background are part of an actual realtime 3d virtual space,
that 2 or more people can be in together, using VR headsets, or a combo of VR headsets and laptops.
One person could be in Toronto, and another in London, and a 3rd person in New York.
We have an early stage working prototype of this immersive space and others, in our alpha app.
During this current phase 1 of our Pilot Project :
we will be exploring & testing various ways that a person would see themselves, or another person, in the space.
A person could choose a playful avatar of themselves, or something more photorealistic.

Prototype :

This is Noah and his grandfather, Dave.  (Names are made up.)
Noah could visit Dave at his retirement home or long term care facility in person,
and they could explore this forest while they are in the same room together, and talk with each other.
Or, if Dave lives in British Columbia, and Noah lives in Toronto,
They could meet in the forest in VR, and have a catchup conversation /  tell jokes, and connect,
even though they are 2,600 miles away from each other.    ( 4,200 kilometres.  :-)  )
We are currently working with /testing a number of realtime 3d landscapes.
Some of these are photo realistic.  Others will be more surreal and imaginative.

Concept Prototype :

Fun is good.   (More info will be posted here soon about this space/scene.)
