Mobius Floe incorporates a unique virtual environment with biofeedback and meditation. The participant wears a head-mounted display and is immersed in a virtual wintery landscape. Physiological data (in the form of GSR readings) are recorded from the participant and fed into the system, affecting various visual and sonic aspects of the virtual landscape. That is, as the meditator becomes increasingly relaxed and begins to display physiological characteristics indicative of a meditative state, they are given feedback about their successes via visual and sonic changes within the virtual environment.
The virtual environment was developed by Firsthand Technology in Seattle, and is based on their Snowworld simulation, developed to help burn victims control their pain.
