Ubisoft has revealed Innergy, a new peripheral that monitors body readings and aims to lower stress.
Key to the game, unveiled during Ubisoft’s E3 press conference, is the Innergy Sensor – a biofeedback tool that measures heart rate variability, blood flow and pulse, akin to Nintendo’s Vitality Sensor.
The game itself guides players through a series of scenarios that help identify personal sources of stress and offers a range of breathing exercises designed to relieve this. An illustrated diary helps them track their progress.
“It has been an exceptional experience creating this game in collaboration with such leading talents,” said Ubisoft’s creative director Sebastien Kochman.
“Our creative and technical teams are working together to build a game that is unlike any other product on the market: entertainment that offers real benefits that players can feel everyday in their body and mind.”
