    The Sensory Environments Evaluation (SEE) Project seeks to formulate a new design methodology for virtual environments that utilize multiple sensory inputs to induce presence. Deviating from virtual reality’s twenty-year focus on photo-realism, our “feels-real” design alternative aims directly at understanding the interdependencies of sensory stimuli in their creation of mental constructs, and the subsequent degree of realism perceived.
