Supplemental Information

Combining various VR-associated technologies to form a new idea

The illustrative equation depicts a concept of combining immersive 3D audio-visuals, sensation of touch and feel of the VR environment to build an all-in-one package and strengthen cancer research through virtuality. VR headsets like Microsoft HoloLens, HTC Vive, Oculus Rift etc., suit well for the 3D immersive audio-visual component. The NIRVANA VR helmet or FEELREAL VR mask are best for the user to feel the surrounding temperature and smell the virtual environment. Haptic data gloves like Gloveone and Dexmo exoskeleton combined would provide appropriate force feedback and a realistic touch simultaneously. These technologies are primarily targeted so that cancer research is made revolutionarily interactive and beneficial.
