Augmented Senses: Enhancing human capacity for empathetic exchange with nature.

We progress towards technological advances which aim to make our lives better, and our experience on this planet more meaningful. Still, the further we advance, the more it seems we lose touch with our place in this ecosystem. Can these same self-serving technological advances be used to enhance our understanding of the environmental dynamics around us? Pioneering advances in science, engineering, and art have created technology that can reveal how the things in the world around us feel, giving us a gateway to interact in novel ways with nature.

This brief seeks proposals for systems and their related consequences which augment our senses or give us new senses by which we can experience reality. Such systems could also be considered to give senses to otherwise inanimate objects or beings.
