We introduce VRSurus, a tangible serious game that aims to inspire children to protect the environment in immersive virtual reality (VR). VRSurus is built upon a physical puppet and a VR head-mounted display (Oculus Rift DK2) to create "tangible virtual animatronics". The player will act as a little elephant called Surus to prevent evil humanbeings from invading the forest. The player is able to use four gestures to cast magical spells: swiping left, swiping right, shaking and jumping. Servos, selonoids and vibration motors will assist with the puppet animation visible to the audience and provide haptic feedback for the player. VRSurus contributes to the HCI, animatronics and tangible computing community by integrating immersive interactive graphics together with gesture recognition and tangible feedback. The game is presented at the UIST 2015 Student Innovation Contest. Video and more details will be publicly available via vrsurus.com.
