We present Relaxation Island, one of several Mood Devices we have developed with our partners as part of the EMMA (Engaging Media for Mental Health Applications) project. Mood Devices are interactive digital media and environments designed to alter the inter-actor’s psychological state. Relaxation Island was designed to support established relaxation techniques, as part of interventions to assist individuals cope with specific anxieties such as examination stress, and also simply as a virtual place where anyone can go to relax. Attendees of this interactive experience will have the opportunity to relax on the island, navigating around the virtual space using a novel wireless “seashell” device
