Recently at the Virtual Reality Festival in Las Vegas (the world’s biggest VR festival), StoryUP XR have been awarded Best Experiential VR Film for a unique combination of technology.
Participant’s explore a VR film by (wait for it): thinking positive thoughts. By leveraging the Muse meditation headband (an EEG-neurofeedback brain computer interface [BCI]) as an input, much like a controller, participants gently move their way through a calm, relaxing VR environment.
It’s the left frontal region of the brain that becomes active when a person feels more positive and optimistic. By monitoring these gamma brainwaves, movements can be achieved in the virtual environment.
