Abstract

We demonstrate PillowVR, virtual reality framework that integrates the smartphone, magnifier and sensors into a pillow/cushion for immersive VR experience in bed. PillowVR is applied for presenting immersive bed time stories to children to help them go to sleep and therefore its interaction was designed to minimize excessive bodily movements - only simple back-of-the head pressure events are used to browse the content. PillowVR illustrates shows how VR can be more woven into our daily lives inexpensively and naturally by customizing the set up and interaction for the specific task and experience.
