VAIR Field is a mobile virtual reality (VR) system that enables multiple players to play a battle game with multiple mobile devices. By tracking the mobile devices’ positions and detecting their rotation and movement, VAIR Field displays images viewed from each player’s position on their displays like a head-mounted display (HMD). VAIR Field enables players to immediately play with the VAIR Gun and VAIR Bow without needing instructions. It also enables children under 13 to safely play VR or augmented reality (AR) games because it does not require a HMD. We compared our new VAIR Gun and BOW with a HTC Vive controller, the initial VAIR Gun, and our previous electric bow interface. The new VAIR Gun and BOW mostly realize VAIR Field’s concepts of user-friendliness for children, sports-like play, and “feel of things.”
