Using a swing set as a physical input device, the Swing virtual reality system is an installation compatible with both the Oculus Rift DK2 and Kinect SDK 2.0. The immersive VR installation uses the rhythmic motion of swinging to inform the multisensory experience.

Arguably the most intriguing capability of the Swing virtual reality program is its bonus intergalactic experience. Swing comes with an additional program that enables the user to fly through the solar system, making it a highly innovative augmented reality experience that combines several movements in technology and culture.

As the reality of space tourism hovers on the horizon, it seems likely that complex virtual reality programming that simulates the experience of space travel will become more accessible and affordable.
