Abstract

In this paper we present ZenG, a neurofeedback ARapplication concept based on Zen Gardening to fostercreativity, self-awareness, and relaxation through embodiedinteractions in a mixed reality environment. We developedan initial prototype which combined physiological sensingthrough EEG with AR visualisation on the Magic LeapDisplay. We evaluated the prototype through preliminaryuser testing with 12 adults. Results suggest users found theexperience to be enjoyable and relaxing, however theapplication could be improved by including more featuresand functionality. ZenG shows the potential for AR toprovide immersive and interactive environments that couldpromote creativity and relaxation, providing solid groundsfor further research.
