We present the collaborative Virtual Reality Neurorobotics Lab, which allows multiple collocated and remote users to experience, discuss and participate in neurorobotic experiments in immersive virtual reality. We describe the coupling of the Neurorobotics Platform of the Human Brain Project with our collaborative virtual reality and 3D telepresence infrastructure and highlight future opportunities arising from our work for research on direct human interaction withsimulated robots and brains.
