Research on Experience Design of Shu Embroidery Techniques Based on Virtual Reality (VR) Technology

Guilin Zhong, Na Qi


With the continuous development of digitization, the public's understanding of traditional Shu embroidery techniques is increasingly ignored. Through the combination of VR technology and Shu embroidery techniques, it needs to be deeply excavated and inherited. Based on the inheritance and development of Shu embroidery, literature research, user research, and case studies are used to collect and sort out the current situation of Shu embroidery and its digital inheritance. Around the semiotic characteristics and process flow of Shu embroidery techniques, the interface design and human-computer interaction experience are studied, and the Shu embroidery skill experience area and game interactive experience area are mainly designed. In conclusion, the innovative inheritance method of Shu embroidery is developed from the transformation of intangible cultural heritage modernization, and VR advanced science and technology is used to provide reference for the design and research of the digital protection platform of Shu embroidery. It is expected that Shu embroidery will be inherited well following the development of the times and then carry forward the traditional technology to the world.
