Introduction and Goal:  While virtual reality (VR) games offer players increased immersion over traditional games, they lack the ability to interface with a key driver behind perception and reasoning: emotions.  This ability presents a barrier to maximizing the immersive potential of VR interactive media.


We sought to solve this issue by developing a biofeedback-enable emotion recognition system that empowers users to create and experience emotionally-adaptive VR games.
