Kazuhiko Hachiya’s Inter Dis- Communication Machine is a communication system aimed at transmitting and receiving sensual experiences.

Used by two people wearing head-mounted displays, the ‘machine’ projects one wearer’s sight and sound perception of the environment into the other one’s display, thus confusing the borders between the identities of ‘you’ and ‘me’.

The Inter Dis-Communication Machine allows its wearers to ‘enter’ each other’s body and perception without being able to influence it.
