One of our specializations is biofeedback: measurements on the body that serve as input, for games or other applications. For example, Virtual Play developed a rehabilitation game for people who had suffered wrist fractures, commissioned by AMC hospital and Motek. The characters in this game are controlled by wrist movements.
Our in-house projects are usually focused on neurofeedback, which is a form of Brain-Computer Interfacing (BCI): computer operation through brain activity. Manual controls (like a mouse or keyboard) are not required in such applications.
Virtual Play also undertakes its own research. One of our current topics is the behaviour of EEG signals under the influence of auditory and visual stimuli. In addition, we work with universities and neuro-feedback clinics for therapeutic applications, as well as for professional training purposes.
