The Floater | A Multisenstory VR Experience (2022)


The Floater is a 8-min multi-sensory VR experience which involves simulations of participant’s visual, auditory, olfactory, and tactile senses in order to experience the life of a dust in the eye immersively.

Creative and Technical Process

Based on the anatomy of the eye ball, we took an actual 3D eye model and built a world on top of it. The entire sky box is also re-texturized to be as bloodshot.

The entire experience follows a storyline with various multisensory elements embedded in different incidents as the "floater" experiences them. Besides visual and audio stimulus, this VR experience also incorporates scent and haptics with the use of a SUBPAC haptic suit.
