VR Skill Acquisition Training System for
Snow Sport NZ
This project is in partnership with High Performance Sport New Zealand and Snow Sport New Zealand. It is based on the idea that in high level acrobatic sports and in particular the snow sports disciplines of Big Air, Slopestyle and Halfpipe, visualising an expert performing a trick can help other athletes to learn how to do it. Elite athletes seem to have the ability to map someone else’s movements onto their own. We are exploring ways to support athletes in visualising themselves doing tricks they don’t yet know how to do.
