Can you light a fire in another dimension like our ancestors have done for centuries at our own? A virtual reality interactive experience where the participant should light a fire using only primitive gestures and virtual tools. It seeks for an absurd paradox between high technology and primitive heritage.
Made entirely inside real-time engine (Unity) and interacted using LeapMotion hand tracker the user have her own hands inside the virtual world and natural interaction in order to make the fire to happen.
The system is also connected to a toaster or a hair blower with an Arduino system that turns on when the user make the fire giving the feeling of heat in the participants hands.
