Hello, I am looking for collaborators for several projects Virtual Reality (VR) that I haven't finished while I was in academia. Some examples:
-- eye convergence for HMD ("Chio-Chio-san" project, IN PROGRESS, NEARLY FINISHED, PAPER ACCEPTED),
-- simulated HDR for real-time rendering (FINISHED AND PUBLISHED),
-- dP x dV invariant in perception in VR (BURIED IN DEEP THOUGHTS, BUT STILL ALIVE ),
-- haptic wind in VR (CONCEPT PAPER PUBLISHED, NEED SUBJECTS for TEST!),
-- virtual roommates (FINISHED AND PUBLISHED, CAN BE IMPROVED FURTHER)
-- view sliding for virtual travel (USER STUDY NEEDED),
-- natural selection in artificial reality (FINISHED AND PUBLSHED),
-- alternative realities for non-human beings (CONCEPT PAPER PUBLISHED, NEED USER STUDY).
Lately, I've been thinking about using programmable human-like agents for VR interface validation. Also, these agents can be used for testing various travel-control techniques, such as obstacle detection and avoidance, speed control, and such. So, no need for human subjects at all. That looks promising.
All listed topics are eggs for future work and papers. Some already hatched. If anyone is interested to learn more, or better yet, to collaborate, gmail andrei.sherstyuk, let's talk.

How did you read Komatsu Sakyo? Was his work translated to Russian!? Have you always spoken English? I know some of his books are translated to English... I used to read Japanese sci-fi (include Komatsu Sakyo) a lot when I was a kid. I was more of a Hoshi Shin-ichi person. Yes, it's so funny some of their stories are becoming real right now in our life!
Funny! I am still learning this "open-for-all" kind of writing, which brings memories from deep childhood. Those of you who know Komatsu Sakyo, one of the best Japanese sci-fi writers of the last century, perhaps remember his adorable extra-terrestrial characher Goemon (not Isikawa Goemon!) who used a roll of toilet paper as a notebook, with a brush and ink. To make the analogy complete, let's add a baloon to one end of the paper and let it fly high. :-)
