The University of Central Florida was awarded a grant (upwards of $450,000) to research and develop a motion capture game that helps tween/teen girls "practice" rejecting tween/teen boy attempts at sex and other inappropriate acts. The player straps into a motion capture game suit that depicts her 3D model on screen, where she's surrounded by virtual boys she can virtually reject.
There are no social consequences here, making the motion capture game a safe way to practice these important skills. It will also give girls more confidence in their decisions and allow them to say "no" safely.
