Reddit user VoxelGUy created a 1:1 virtual representation of his living room for the purpose of conducting VR and AR experiments, including one cleaning game that turns the task of vacuuming into a gamified experience. The virtual reality experience involves sucking up virtual Euros using an Oculus Quest and Touch controller on a real vacuum cleaner. As the creator sees it, the in-game currency has the potential to be used to upgrade the virtual environment and make the tasks even more incentivized and rewarding.
While there are already many apps that help to turn household chores into games, this prototype minigame offers a look into the future of household cleaning with virtual reality applications.
