the project explored connecting virtual environments with a physical one, where the user, wearing a soft robotic system, can move around space and detect different objects that correlated with the physical environment (position, volume, distance etc). This would actuate a robotic system and change the behaviour depending on which objects were observed (inflating or deflating in this case)
