Real Baby-Real Family is a virtual reality app that features a crying baby participants must attempt to soothe. The app was designed for expecting parents or people considering having a child of their own.
Japan’s Kanagawa Institute of Technology collaborated with the Fujitsu Social Science Laboratory to create the app, which places a tracking module on a doll that comes to life with the help of VR headsets. The app creates a face for the baby that resembles both you and your partners faces' to make for the most realistic of scenarios, while eliciting a more emotional response to an otherwise anonymous object.
Participants must sway, hug, burp, feed or change the crying baby in order to soothe it. Real Baby-Real Family speaks to an aging technologically apt generation that is preparing to have children through the virtual world they know so well.
