More specifically, two players with different gender wear the headset, and by synchronising their respective movements, they can virtually feel and see the other's body through their own eyes.

In fact, it takes insights from neuroscience and body perception science to try and create the illusion of owning somebody else's body, and trick the brain into believing that they have different skin colour, body parts or are experiencing someone else's thoughts. This system can be used to promote empathy, for example, or increase understanding of differences between sexes.
