            Abstract

            In this paper, we propose a framework for a bio-responsive Virtual Reality (VR) system that evolves and reflects the immersant’s physiological data such as gestures and movements to biofeedback measures over time into a tightly coupled real-virtual immersive space. This paper will present current prototypes in the various application and experiential spaces we see our work being applied to from therapeutic applications to meditative spaces and artistic installations.
