PDF: Persephone’s Feet: A Foot-Based Approach to Play in Virtual Reality

Abstract

Persephone’s Feet is a virtual reality game that questions: What if you could only garden with your feet? Exploring a series of three foot-based gestures (Tap, Hover & Shake, and Kick), this work presents a proof-of-concept for a novel virtual reality game for gardening. The game is designed as a relaxation and light exercise activity to take during breaks for the demographic of users who spend prolonged periods of time sedentary at a desk, which is becoming increasingly common for both work and education in modern society. A preliminary evaluation suggests that foot-based gestures can engender fun and motivate light exercise.
