“The goal is not to build a model of the world in a computer — it is to build it in the mind of the user” — Mark Bolas

The neuroscientist David Eagleman has been working to popularize the term umwelt to signify the world as it is experienced by a particular organism. His quest is about to take off, since consumer virtual and augmented reality systems are perfectly positioned to radically expand the human umwelt. By connecting the headsets that are coming to market to constellations of physical and virtual sensors, VR and AR will allow us to directly perceive and understand realms that are too abstract, distributed, fast, or slow to comprehend with the unaided mind. Sensory augmentation will migrate from the neuroscience lab and far-out new media experiments to our daily lives.
