Abstract

This paper investigates the interaction of developmentally disabled adults with a mediated multisensory virtual reality experience within a familiar social context. This was done as part of an exploratory case study. To this end, a media technological artefact was derived from the Snoezelen concept, a mul-tisensory environment for stimulation and relaxation. This system is comprised of an HTC Vive based virtual reality environment tailored to the specific re-quirements of the case and its stakeholders. Play sessions were conducted at Ribe Udviklingscenter, a residence and development centre for the disabled. After compiling passive and participant observations from the sessions, and in-terviews with key staff, a series of guidelines were proposed. These guidelines encapsulate the project’s concerns and overarching trends and provide a future basis of study when designing and developing an interactive multisensory virtu-al environment.
