Using virtual reality in criminological research

Jean-Louis van Gelder, Marco Otte, Eva C Luciano
2014 Crime Science  
However, as with other methodological innovations, the field of criminology has been slow to catch on. To address this gap, this article explores the potential of VR as a tool for crime research.  ...  Since the pioneering early studies of the 1990s hinted at its promise as a research method, virtual reality (VR) technology has increasingly been used by social scientists.  ...  Their IVR environment consisted of a room with a virtual mirror hanging in the middle of one of its walls.  ...
