How can we use VR to create playful and fantastical experiences?

Unreal Engine | OSC | Arduino

What's it like to be Pinocchio -- trapped in the whale's stomach, unable to hide a lie? Answer questions truthfully before the whale blows you out of its blowhole to escape and become a real boy!

PinocchioVR is a virtual reality game that explores the in-the-headset and out-of-headset experience. The viewer is Pinocchio, but those waiting to try the VR experience can walk up to a microphone and ask the viewer questions. These questions are ported into the game as the whale's voice, while a heart sensor detects slight changes in pulse to detect whether Pinocchio's answers are the truth or a lie.
