The Virtual Forest is an interactive, screen-based experience commissioned by Dementia Australia. First created several years ago, Virtual Forest was completely recreated and rebuilt by Deakin, including integration with new hardware, software, and new CG assets. The experience is simple to use, and allows people (with dementia or their family members) to move their arms and, in doing so (through the tracking of their movement) influence activity on the screen. This includes ducks and fish swimming, seasons changing, the flight patterns of butterflies and dragonflies and a range of other activity. By rebuilding and recreating the Virtual Forest, Deakin is now able to work with Dementia Australia to create more experiences.
