Icabu is a mixed reality experience in VR played with real drums as controllers. With the help of these drums, the players are supposed to rhythmically bring the threatened ecosystems of this world back into balance.

The team “Diving into Unknown” – consisting of Jasmina Sadikovic, Savish Uttam and Daniela Frank – developed a playable tech atmosphere prototype in the 3rd semester. Doing so required the team to master the production pipeline for a VR game and to build drum controllers using an Arduino board connected to Unity engine.
