VR Rides
An exercise game to promote physical and cognitive health

VR Rides is a virtual reality game developed by the Positive Computing Laboratory at the University of Sydney, that aims to engage older adults in physical and cognitive exercise to prevent developing various diseases. The experience combines a recumbent tricycle, real-world imagery, an Oculus Rift VR headset and a Microsoft Kinect camera, such that the player can navigate real locations in a safe virtual environment.
