Description (in English): 

This video provides limited documentation of the
“Torus” project. Unfortunately, however, it does not give a good
impression of the reader’s experience of Torus as an instance of
immersive VR. Constrained by the requirements of Cave technicians, the
video is shot from a single point of view and without the stereo imaging
that would usually be in operation. Moreover, the camera’s point of
view is different and significantly distant from the reader’s point of
view and this compromises the immersive illusion. For example, and most
obviously, planes of text which should appear to extend behind the
reader and out through the screen appear to be folded back away from
both the camera’s and the reader’s point of view. Please bear this in
mind when reviewing this material.
