論文アブストラクト:Interfaces for collaborative tasks, such as multiplayer games can enable more effective and enjoyable collaboration. However, in these systems, the emotional states of the users are often not communicated properly due to their remoteness from one another. In this paper, we investigate the effects of showing emotional states of one collaborator to the other during an immersive Virtual Reality (VR) gameplay experience. We created two collaborative immersive VR games that display the real-time heart-rate of one player to the other. The two different games elicited different emotions, one joyous and the other scary. We tested the effects of visualizing heart-rate feedback in comparison with conditions where such a feedback was absent. The games had significant main effects on the overall emotional experience.

日本語のまとめ:

2種類の協調VRゲームを通して、他プレイヤーの心理状態の提示による体験内容やプレイヤー間の関係性への影響を調査した。心理状態は心拍数をハートの伸縮として提示。調査の結果、体験内容への影響はポジティブな傾向がみられた。
