Exploring Physical Activity for Disabled Individuals in Virtual Reality

Started June 14, 2023

Abstract or project description

Ashley is working on building a virtual reality application to provide disabled individuals with ways to exercise their upper bodies. The app will be developed in Unity and available for the Meta Quest headset. Ashley will be writing some C# scripts to cause assets within the application to move and act a certain way. A potential final deliverable is this application as well as a writeup describing findings and the ultimate conclusion. Ashley will be able to create custom assets and characters to be displayed within the app!
