  • Patent number: 10152118
    Abstract: Various embodiments described herein provide for systems and methods for delivering experience elements of a digital experience to a participant based on an emotional response, from the participant, to the digital experience. The systems and methods dynamically score a digital experience, such as a virtual reality experience (VRE), for a participant based on the participant's past or present emotional response to the digital experience. The dynamic scoring of the digital experience can, for example, determine a narrative orientation of a narrative digital experience, or can determine experience elements (e.g., cinematic elements) expressed or applied to the digital experience.
