Tablet-based interaction methods for VR
Independent thesis Advanced level (degree of Master (Two Years)), 20 credits / 30 HE creditsStudent thesis
Interaction with virtual environments has for a long time been a subject of research and many different techniques and interaction-devices have been developed. Both 3D interaction devices such as wands, gloves etc are in use, but also traditional 2D interaction with a mouse and a keyboard exist. In this work we explore the possibility to use a TabletPC as an interaction-device for virtual environments. Several methods of interaction for tasks like selection and value manipulation were developed, using the human ability of spatial knowledge as an aid. The methods have been developed to suit a pen-based interface and the special features of the pen have been taken under consideration. Evaluation showed that the developed interaction methods were usable.
