As part of our investigation into the uses of VR, Knit teamed up with BreatheSync to create an immersive prototype to encourage Flow.
Flow is the mental state of operation in which a person performing an activity is fully immersed in a feeling of energised focus, full involvement, and enjoyment in the process of the activity. Our VR applet rewarded users with a pleasantly evolving environment when their brain activity was at levels that encourage Flow.
The prototype is a custom headset, made up of Neurosky EEG band and Samsung Gear VR combined using 3d printed parts. The environment is powered by unity and responds to the biofeedback from the Neurosky headset data in realtime.
