Title
Medical art therapy of the future : building an interactive virtual underwater world in a childrens hospital
Author
Abstract
We are developing an interactive virtual underwater world with the aim to reduce stress and boredom in hospitalised children, to improve their quality of life, by employing an evidence-based design process and by using techniques from Artificial Life and Human-Computer Interaction. A 3D motion sensing camera tracks the activity of children in front of a wall projection. As they wave their hands, colorful sea creatures paddle closer to say hi and interact with the children.
