Title:


    Versatile Training Field: the Wellness Entertainment System using Trampoline Interface

Presenter(s):


Entry Number: 25


Description:


    We propose the wellness entertainment system Versatile Training Field (VTF). In this system, we use a mini trampoline as the input device. The system enables the user to move and jump freely in VR space by exaggerated movement corresponding to walking or jumping on the mini trampoline. Improvements in exercise motivation and support for continuous exercise are achieved in our system, since it is possible to enjoy strolling through a virtual space, which is usually difficult to experience, by exercising on the mini trampoline without injury to the user’s joints.
