Understanding psychological mechanisms to improve virtual spaces and Metaverse events
Institut für innovative Live Kommunikation (ILK)
For online meetings and events, three-dimensional virtual spaces emerged. These virtual spaces are accessible via avatars and can be part of an entire virtual world, a so-called Metaverse. Besides technical aspects, design and use of virtual spaces is also interesting from a psychological perspective. One relevant psychological aspect addressed in this paper is the effect of lighting on perception. A literature analysis including peer-reviewed articles on lighting research and information technologies, especially comparing items and scales was conducted. Additionally, market statistics and technical specifications of monitor devices were reviewed. The results showed that many measurement instruments have a similar basis, but no standard in items or scales can be identified. Further, there is a wide range of technical parameters of monitor devices. Hence, several challenges become apparent for valid and practice- oriented research. Increasing the user experience in virtual spaces will therefore be a joint task for science and practice.
