Abstract. While virtual reality (VR) provides a high level of immersion,
most applications are still based on audio-visual stimuli alone.
The enhancement of VR with other sensory cues (multi-sensory stimuli)
has shown great promise for increasing presence, eliciting more realistic
behavior, and improving the quality of experience in general. Most
multi-sensory initiatives pursue either a stationary approach or a mobile approach using wearables. To enhance movement-heavy, multi-user VR training of police officers with multi-sensory stimuli, we identified the need for a single mobile device to administer intensive multi-sensory stimuli. Therefore, in this paper we present the design process and development of a physical mobile multi-sensory feedback platform for adding heat, wind, mist, and pain as feedback modalities to enhance the immersive experience. In a preliminary evaluation we found promising effects of multi-sensory stimuli for increasing stress and influencing behaviour in VR. We further present our recommendations and lessons learned in designing multi-sensory experiences for police VR training.
