Do you all remember the final scene of 2001: A Space Odyssey? Dr. David Bowman is plunged through space, surrounded by a spherical vehicle that is his protective environment. Suddenly, Bowman appears in a Louis XIV-style bedroom still within the spaceship.
If that moment in the film was exciting to you, if slightly unsettling, then this should interest you.
With touchscreen, voice-activation, and intuitive technologies so prevalent, the Immersive Cocoon is a computer that we would almost soak in.

The interior of the dome would be completely sensitive to your movements.
Imagine you were responsible for learning about deep-sea life for school. You could read the appropriate section in your textbook or watch a Discovery documentary, but what if you simulated the depths of the ocean?
