People tend to synchronize heart rates, breathing and neural rhythms during intimate physical and emotional exchange, which in turn enhances their mutual feelings of social connectedness. In a world of rising remote interactions, we experience a lack of in-person interactions that precondition socially-induced synchronization. Inspired by this phenomenon, we created SinkInSync, a VR-based cross-person EEG neurofeedback experience towards augmenting emotional social connectedness via externally-induced brainwave synchronization between pairs of individuals.
