New To VR: The Mind Is Your Playground In Brain Connectivity Leap

After several days of horror-based virtual reality (VR) videogame experiences today’s New To VR is going in a very different direction.

Brain Connectivity Leap

Developed by Portuguese creator Filipe Rodrigues as part of his Biomedical Engineering Master’s thesis, Brain Connectivity Leap is an interactive simulation in which you can examine a three dimensional representation of the human brain. The brain, which displays reactions from real data, can be manipulated directly and as you examine the various neurological components and processes change them through various sliders and menus either from the outside or from within the brain.

Supporting both the Oculus Rift DK1 and DK2 (Design Kit) head-mounted displays (HMDs), Brain Connectivity Leap also has compatibility with the Leap Motion’s hand gesture tracking device allowing you to navigate and manipulate the construct whilst future planned updates include haptic feedback. This single person experience can now be downloaded from the Oculus VR Share digital content platform.

You can see a video of this in action below:
