Flowborne VR is a meditative breathing game with biofeedback support that teaches a calming breathing style in an intuitive way.

Meditative Biofeedback Breathing Game in Virtual Reality for Relaxation and Sleep

Biofeedback Enabled

Flowborne VR is controlled by your very own breath. The VR controller is used to detect the subtle respiration-induced movements of your abdomen. The virtual environment reacts to your breathing in real-time (biofeedback), thereby guiding your attention and helping you perfect your breathing style. Furthermore, every exhale translates into a floating movement, letting you gently explore the virtual world.

Realtime Biofeedback of Diaphragmatic Breathing

Meditation in the Metaverse

Flowborne VR currently runs on Meta Quest 2, a state-of-the-art mobile virtual reality system that requires no additional sensors or computers. This allows you to deeply immerse yourself in a nonobtrusive way. Flowborne VR is your private refuge in the metaverse, readily available whenever you need to unwind.

How Breathing May Change Your Life

Flowborne helps you practice a mindful and relaxed breathing style. Numerous scientific studies showcase the positive effects of breathing exercises on mental health and well-being. Mindful breathing can strengthen the parasympathetic branch of the autonomic nervous system, thereby calming both body and mind. In the long run, this may improve your resiliency and enhance your psychophysiological health.

Wide Variety of Breathing Rhythmus and Styles

Beautiful and Serene Environments

In Flowborne, your breath is embedded in soothing virtual worlds based on psychological principles of restoration and recovery. Balanced and calming color schemes combined with fascinating effects and a relaxing meditative soundtrack gently draw your involuntary attention and allow your mind to focus entirely on your breath. This helps replenish depleted mental resources in a casual way.
