TurkDeck is a prop-based virtual reality system that let’s users not only (a) see and hear a virtual world, but also (b) feel it. Conceptually, the user is in a fully populated physical world. (c) In reality, however, TurkDeck’s physical room is almost empty. “Human actuators” present and operate props only when and where the user can actually reach them. (d) By reusing generic props, TurkDeck minimizes the required props to what human actuators can carry, still allows producing virtual worlds of arbitrary size.
