Abstract

“Ski Jumping Pairs” is a video content of an imaginary sport in which two players jump using a pair of skis. The highlight of the content is incredible aerial style of players. We have already developed a VR ski jump system using HMD. In this study, we have developed a system in which users can experience Ski Jumping Pairs. First, we propose a design method by introducing an idea of composing make-believe play to enhance the VR experience of the world of video content. Then, we developed a prototype of the system. An experimental evaluation was used to demonstrate the effectiveness of the method.
