SITDOWN: Virtual Reality Wheelchair

sitdown

We have all seen people who have to use a wheelchair to get around on a daily basis. Have you ever wondered what it feels like to be disabled? SITDOWN is a virtual reality setup that aims to address that. It is a game that gives you a taste of the difficulties faced by disabled people. You can move your avatar in the game by turning the wheels of the wheelchair.

The developers used an iMac, an Oculus Rift, and Unity 4.6 to complete this project. More information is available here.
