EVE: Virtual Touch Lab

EVE: Virtual Touch Lab is an interactive virtual encounter game for 1-4 participants at a time. Wearing VR glasses and smart gloves, the participants are taken to a 12-minute virtual experience created by mysterious “EVE”. In the virtual world, the participants are transformed into avatar bodies. They can interact with each other, smart gloves transmitting touch sensations in real-time. Participants play through one-on-one encounter game targeted to foster “micro-love” through empathic connection and synchronic movements. At the end of the experience, the participant finds out that some of the avatars they encountered had been controlled by artificial intelligence instead of real human beings. Can the empathy created by humans and the algorithms be distinguished?
