Final project- 5 Stages of Grief

Final Project Screenshot

Towards the end of NMD 102 I got the opportunity to do one of the projects I am most fond of since being a New Media student. By utilizing emerging technologies such as the Oculus Rift virtual reality headset, as well as a team of 3 with some imagination, I was able to model an experience which reflected upon the 5 Stages of Grief. Denial, anger, bargaining, depression, acceptance. Beyond the opportunity to work with the Oculus rift, one of our goals was to try and help those who may be affected by grief by crafting an experience that would help them realize the path they might take to better maneuver their grief. Upon presenting this project at the New Media night at the IMRC we actually met a psychologist who said virtual reality was actually an emerging section of psychology, therapy, and such. Its nice to know that what we came up to pursue as a project actually has some merit and future in potentially helping people.
