Integrating VR and FitBit

PRGS Students Involved: Mohammad Ahmadi

 

Emerging technologies often become more impactful as various technologies are combined.  Especially in the training arena, the value of virtual environments expands with the ability to monitor performance and evaluate users as they progress through the environment.  Basic tools like a common FitBit can make this kind of assessment possible for the common user.  Thus, this experiment explores how a FitBit can be synchronized with a VR-based game to assess any changes in user heart rate during game play.
