Face your own body as a digital VR avatar that is changing and reacting to your movements and the behavior of another person with whom you share a virtual reactive environment with. Participants will explore the possibilities of interaction with multi-user VR and experience it in an installation.
Who is the target audience of the workshop?
Anyone curious in experiencing multi-user VR and designing live multi-user interaction.
What will attendees of the workshop learn?
- Discovering a way to accomplish multi-user interaction in VR using vvvv.
- How to communicate with other people in VR?
- Can we think of new multi-user interactions?
- What does your avatar look like, how does it visually react to an other user?
What’s happening in the workshop?
After a short introduction on the possibilities of interacting with two people in VR we will go through some examples that show multi user interaction. We’ll be looking at input data provided by either the Kinect v2 or the HTC Vive to base your interactions upon or create reactive visuals with.
We’ll encourage to you think of and create your own experience and interactions for how people could meet in VR, after which you’ll have the ability to experience this augmented interaction first hand!
As mentioned above we will express ourselves in VR using a digital pointcloud, to accomplish this we will use the DX11 particles pack from which we will experiment with the different emitters, effectors and modifiers provided within the pack.
