We realise that not everyone can make it to the Bristol VR Lab Afternoon Seminar events so we have recently started recording them for the people who can’t make it and for those who want to rewatch the talks. Right now you can watch the Medtech Afternoon Seminars 5.0 talks on our YouTube channel or on this page.
VR exergames combine physical exercise with gameplay in a virtual reality (VR) environment. Christof is a Senior Lecturer in Computer Science at the University of Bath, studying how VR exergames can be designed to be safe, effective and enjoyable.
In this talk Christof will outline some of the practical conclusions he and his colleagues have drawn from their research on VR exergames. He will talk about some common challenges of VR exergames and explain some game features that have been shown to improve the game experience and the effectiveness of exercise.
