Pipping aims to explore how players interact with physical objects while in Virtual Reality. The experience has been created for the HTC Vive utilizing the Vive Trackers to aid in the tracking of physical objects. In the experience, a player must return a fallen egg to its nest to begin hatching. The player then takes on a caretaker role building a bond while interacting with a variety of digital and physical objects.
The Prototyping eNarrative Lab (PeN Lab) at Georgia Tech applies digital information design and interaction design principles to digital storytelling to create more complex and expressive narratives, focusing on emerging platforms like experimental television, virtual reality, and augmented reality, and on the intersection of storytelling with game design and simulation design.
