Application for Virtual Reality where rowing is used as exercise. The player has an overview from first-person point of view inside of the virtual scull on a lake. Several play modes are implemented with different user interface visualisations for single and multiplayer so far.
VR Rowing project was presented on Long night of science and was recognised by news “Berliner Zeitung”: https://www.berliner-zeitung.de/berlin/sportler-im-cyberspace-rudern-ohne-nass-zu-werden-30578096

Virtual Reality & Exercise Gaming
Course as part of Summer and Winter University where goal is that students come up and develop their own exercise games for Virtual Reality. The course is focusing on topics such as:
- Introduction to programming for Virtual Reality with Unity
- Understanding benefits and limitations of VR environments
- Workshop in designing, prototyping, and developing for one small Exergame in VR
- Perform a usability test and use the gathered result during the development

|Zusammenfassung||With the coming of age of virtual/augmented reality and interactive media, numerous defi nitions, frameworks, and models of immersion have emerged across diff erent fi elds ranging from computer graphics to literary works. Immersion is oftentimes used interchangeably with presence as both concepts are closely related. However, there are noticeable interdisciplinary diff erences regarding defi nitions, scope, and constituents that are required to be addressed so that a coherent understanding of the concepts can be achieved. Such consensus is vital for paving the directionality of the future of immersive media experiences (IMEx) and all related matters.The aim of this white paper is to provide survey of defi nitions of immersion and presence which leads to a defi nition of immersive media experience (IMEx). The Quality of Experience (QoE) for immersive media is described by establishing a relationship between the concepts of QoE and IMEx followed by application areas of immersive media experience. Infl uencing factors on immersive media experience are elaborated as well as the assessment of immersive media experience. Finally, standardization activities related to IMEx are highlighted and the white paper is concluded with an outlook related to future developments.|
