Presence in shared virtual environments and virtual togetherness.
PRESENCE-TELEOPERATORS AND VIRTUAL ENVIRONMENTS
214 - 217.
This Forum article discusses the relationships among people, their avatars, and their virtual environment workstations in a shared virtual environment. It introduces the notion of togetherness, the sense of people being together in a shared space, which is the counterpart for shared VEs to the presence of an individual in a VE. The role of tactual communication is emphasized as being fundamental to togetherness.
