Paper Abstract

The goal of this VR system is to simulate a bowling game for adaption in muscular rehabilitation training. The virtual environment allows the user to pick up a bowling ball and hit the pins, followed by an update and display of the score they gained; and the players can alternate between each other to have a competition. Implemented on the Unity engine and SteamVR, the VR Toolkit is employed in modeling and script development. Technical innovations are made in generation of the grabbing and releasing controllers with adjustable colliders, and the respawn detector triggered when the ball hits the back of the bowling alley in the game. We present the specific tasks of muscular rehabilitation, conceptualization of VR techniques and the detailed implementation of the system.
