Willem-Paul Brinkman at TEDx Rotterdam
WILLEM-PAUL BRINKMAN – virtual reality will lead the future
Willem-Paul Brinkman is a researcher and examines the interaction between man and machine. But thatís not all. Brinkman is more than just a researcher delivering intricate studies, which are only interesting for his peers. He leads the way by developing so-called VRET-systems and combating phobias with avatars and virtual reality.
Having a job interview or asking a girl out on a date. Social activities that can be at most thrilling or nerve-wrecking to some, but truly terrifying to others. By reconstructing our social environment in a virtual world, Brinkman might be able to help people with social problems in the near future.
