Presence - VR

The goal was to create a VR experience the show the emptiness of a person's home. A narrative that the user could experience by examining the environment. Switches could be used and object could be picked up with the users hands.

Very early on I decided to integrate the Leap Motion controller that was attached to the Rift headsets at uni. It's a really uncanny experience seeing your "hands" in front of you.

The goal was solid but the execution was lacking due to this being my first both VR and Leap Motion project and getting to grips and testing the abilities of the platforms took priority before I could really take the environment from generic to unique in terms of its narrative potential.
