The . ABSTRACT Numerous previous studies have suggested that distances appear to be compressed in immersive virtual environments presented via head mounted display systems , relative to in the real world . However , the principal factors that are responsible for this phenomenon have remained largely unidentified . In this paper we shed some new light on this intriguing problem by reporting the results of two recent experiments in which we assess egocentric distance perception in a high fidelity , low latency , immersive virtual environment that represents an exact virtual replica of the participant ' s concurrently occupied real environment . Under these novel conditions , we make the startling discovery that distance perception appears not to be significantly compressed in the immersive virtual environment , relative to in the real world .
