Apply Virtual Reality Technology in Learning Tai Chi Movement
Tai Chi exercise is a series of low-intensity mind-body physical activities. It has been known for centuries that
regular practice leads to move vigor and flexibility, better balance and mobility, and a sense of well-being. VR is one
powerful tool which allow people to go beyond the limitations of physical tools. This paper is going to use a VR program to
simulate Tai Chi exercise from Tai Chi master to promote Tai Chi to the younger generation. In this paper the design and
interface of VR system are clearly described. Motion capture system and fast Fourier transformation is utilized to get the
simulation model of Tai Chi movement.
