This work in progress report demonstrates a novel approach for behavioral augmentations in Virtual Reality (VR). Using a large scale tracking system, groups of five users explored a virtual museum. We investigated how augmenting social interactions impacts this experience, by designing behavioral transformations for behavioral phenomena in social interactions. Preliminary data indicate a reduction of perceived isolation, and a more thought-provoking experience with active behavioral augmentations.
