CASE STUDY
VR WHEELCHAIR BASKETBALL
VR WHEELCHAIR BASKETBALL
OUR CHALLENGE…
We created the VR Wheelchair Basketball for Silver & Black Give Back Team Up Challenge. The game was developed for South Texas Regional Adaptive Paralympic Sports (STRAPS) in order to help recruit players and serve as another training tool for athletes.

 

Our challenge was making it feel realistic but still making it accessible to the player. Essentially, making sure our virtual reality experience was as close to wheelchair athletes experience as possible. This included making sure the wheelchair itself behaved like it would in real life. We had to study how players turned, their speed (both forward and backward), and the momentum behind shooting in order to transfer it into our virtual world.

THE PROCESS
We met with our collaborators to understand how we can use VR to help wheelchair athletes. We discovered that a lot of people were unaware of wheelchair sports and wanted to bring awareness.
We met with players and watched wheelchair basketball games to ensure that the virtual game would match the actual game.
We then created a virtual world, with help from a graphic artist, that immerses players in a wheelchair basketball game. This includes an active scoreboard, a wheelchair athlete, a stadium and even cheering fans.
RESULTS
We created a fully equipped Virtual Reality Wheelchair Basketball game. The game features 2 modes: free play and timed, which features a score multiplier that moves around the court which encourages players to score extra points!

 

We were able to share our project with fans at a Spurs game, who were excited and able to catch on quickly to the controls. STRAPS director was “so excited that this emerging technology is putting players in the game in a virtual way and increasing awareness of Paralympic sports.”
