Autonomous sensory meridian response (ASMR) is a tingling sensation that can be aroused by visual, sound, touch and emotional triggers, and can produce feelings of relaxation and euphoria. Light trigger is a new kind of visual trigger that has been gaining popularity in YouTube ASMR videos, and we analyzed this to draw design considerations. From there, we propose asmVR, a VR-based method to experience ASMR using light triggers. The ASMRtist can create the content using hand-tracked light triggers while roleplaying a virtual avatar, while viewers can experience an immersive and intimate relation with them to help trigger ASMR. We also propose a user study plan in the future to evaluate its effectiveness in inducing ASMR, as well as propose future development plans.

ASMR(Autonomous sensory meridian response)は、視覚や聴覚、触覚などによって生じる、脳がゾワッとするような心地良い感覚です。ASMRを強める新しい手法として、光のパターンと組み合わせる手法が最近注目を集めています。私達は本手法を組み込んだVR体験「asmVR」を提案します。ASMRコンテンツをつくる人(ASMRitst)は、VR空間の中で光のパターンを制御しながら体験者に話しかけます。そのとき生じるASMRの強さや、ASMRistと体験者の間の関係の変化を調べることが本研究の目的です。
