A systematic review of virtual brainstorming from the perspective of creativity

This study explores virtual reality (VR) as an emerging tool integrated into brainstorming activities to enhance creativity and systematically reviews existing studies to provide an advanced literature review on this subject. Moreover we propose a framework for enhancing creativity in virtual brainstorming (VB) based on the 4Ps (person process product and press) of creativity which provides guidance on leveraging VB to enhance creativity. Furthermore eight affordances of VB are identified to enhance creativity: anonymity appraisal avatars immersion multiple communication recording simulated objects and tracing. The potential perspectives of VB to enhance creativity based on this study’s framework are also explored which deserves further investigation.
