Abstract

This paper presents development on a conceptual method to remap supernumerary limbs using Virtual Reality (VR) as a platform for experimentation. Our VR system allows users to control a third arm through their own limbs such as their head, arms, and feet with the ability to switch between them. To realize and experiment with our remapping method, we used the Oculus Rift in conjunction with OptiTrack to track users in a room-scaled virtual environment. We present some initial findings from a small pilot study and conclude with suggestions for future work.
