The Chair Experiment - Windows
- HTC ViveFREE
The Chair Experiment is a VR experinece in redirected movement in very small space. This is not a game, though it can be fun. There is preparation required before running in the experiment.
Download the zip, extract the files and run TheChairExperiment.exe Though only one person is needed to run the experiment, it is best used with two with one person acting as the experimenter and the other as the subject. This assumes you have a Vive and one controller and that your pass through camera is enabled. In addition your play space floor height should be calibrated as accurately as is reasonably possible. Preparation: Clear your play area Find a kitchen chair Place the kitchen chair in the play area In steamVR set Chaperon to "Developer" mode (The chaperon system provides a great reference for where you are in the real works, but this sort of goes against the purpose of our experiment.) If your space is big enough that you dont engage the chaperon system then you dont need to worry about it. The Experimenter starts the program, enters VR and uses the passthrough camera to place the REAL chair as close to the position as the Virtual chair as posible. The Experiment can "reset" the environment by pressing the button above the track pad.
Computer good enough to run the Vive. A vive, and controllers.
The subejct enters vr without a controller in hand. (if experimenting by yourself, set the controller on the floor near the chair) The subject is instructed to sit down on the virutal chair, observe the red table with the dark wooden blocks on it and the green table next to it. They are asked to take the controller and approch the red and green tables. The subjects job is to move each brown block from the red table to the green table. This is accomplished by using the controller to "grab" a block by reaching for it and pressing the trigger. Once the block is grabed the subject rotates a bit and places the block on the greent table. When all the blocks are placed on the green table the subject should move back to the chair. Be carefull, the real chair is not where you left it. Thats it. Discuss what you think is happening.
DO NOT USE THIS. IF YOU DO AND YOU HURT YOURSELF, SOMEONE ELSE OR DAMAGE PROPERTY ITS NOT MY FAULT
