Hello there! This is still a draft; however, I figured I would publish it as I progress. My last update is 7/4/2019. (Happy 4th of July!)
tl;dr — Life, specifically relating to time, is perplexing, fleeting, and yet occasionally seemingly endless. I thought about it a little too much, got curious, and decided to put on a headset to write this informal paper.
Some of the sources which I am currently reading through are attached below. Once I am finished, I plan to clean and compile (ideally coherent) bullet-point notes of fascinating parts of these studies.
If you’re reading this draft as of 7/4, I am also awaiting delivery of my Oculus Rift S. Although I was the President of the largest collegiate AR/VR organization in the world, I’ve ironically never owned a Oculus (or Vive) personally in my 3+ years as a developer.
I’ve chosen the Rift S as my home workstation due to it having sufficient body / space tracking for my highly-cramped bedroom. Once I’ve built a Minimum Viable Thesis Test (MVTT), I plan to conduct small-scale (n < 30) studies, across all ages, of perception in time in VR.
Thanks for reading so far! This is very WIP.
