SWING: The Dream of Flying


Swing is an interactive VR-installation that makes a dream come true: the dream of flying. It uses a swing as a physical component with Oculus Rift and Kinect. This innovative combination of technology enhances the swinging experience with virtual reality and creates an unique immersive adventure in a crafted watercolored world.

SWING VR innovates in a number of areas. Combining VR technology with physical interfaces is a largely unexplored area, especially combining physical motion with virtual sensations. That leads to interesting questions regarding the medical impact that carefully designed VR experiences can have on humans and their physiological and psychological state.

The prototype was originated at the Burg Giebichenstein University of Art and Design Halle in winter 2014.
