Abstract

The project is an interactive virtual reality reading experience. The user is able to read a book or story in VR. When certain achievements are reached, such as finishing a chapter, the user is given the opportunity to transport to the environment that they are reading about. This gives the user a great opportunity to interact and learn hands-on with the material they are reading about. For example, if the user is reading about World War I, they will be given the opportunity to transport to the battlefields/trenches in Europe.
