Device, System, and Method for Robot-Controlled Induction of the Feeling of Human Presence

A method for inducing the feeling of a presence (FoP) in a subject by using a master-slave robotic system, the method including the steps of altering a visual perception of a surrounding environment of the subject, connecting the subject with a robotic master device so that the subject can move, move on or manipulate the robotic master device, connecting the subject with a robotic slave device, making the subject move, move on or manipulate the robotic master device so that the subject is directly or indirectly touched by the robotic slave device according to a movement of the robotic master device, wherein the robotic master device and the robotic slave device are operatively connected so that the subject receives at least one of spatially and temporally conflicting sensorimotor stimulation.
