Space Lava 5ever, is a virtual reality, exploration experience. The user is dropped into the center of a room with blue-tinted lava (aka space lava) They’re facing 4 objects in front of them and a large light switch on the left.
The objects, switch, and room vibe, in general, was designed with the main goal of self-guided interaction. (I’ve got a 100% completion rate on that so far, including boomers!) Clicking a vase is representative of grabbing a vase. After a user clicks/grabbing the vase, a corresponding colored fire emits from the couch and cabinet. This ideally leads to the user playing around with the various combination of objects and eventually flipping the ‘Space Lava Switch’
The haptics system is designed primarily for the vase interaction. When a user’s hand or hands collide with a vase or the switch they will feel a soft pulse haptic and soft sizzle sound. Then as they grab the vase a slightly stronger haptic begins to pulse rapidly along with a louder cracking sound encouraging the behavior until it stops when the flame erupts with a whoosh sound. Repeating the process on the same vase will activate the same haptics and extinguish the fire with an extinguishing sound.
