title Working in a Virtual World: Interaction Techniques Used in the Chapel Hill Immersive Modeling Program
source Research report TR96-029, Department of Computer Science, University of North Carolina, Chapel Hill
summary This paper presents a description of the interaction techniques used in the Chapel Hill Immersive Modeling Program (CHIMP). CHIMP is intended for the preliminary stages of architectural design. It is an immersive system; users work directly within a virtual world. The main goal has been to develop interaction techniques that exploit the benefits of working immersed while compensating for its limitations. Interaction techniques described and discussed in this paper include: . Action at a distance . Look-at menus . Remote controls (hand-held widgets) . Constrained object manipulation using twohands . Two-handed control panel interaction . Worlds in miniature . Interactive numbers Keywords: Virtual reality, Virtual environments, Computeraided modeling, Geometric modeling, User interface design, Two-handed interaction, Two-handed interfaces, Interactive computer graphics. 1. Introduction 1.1. CHIMP Overview The UNC-Chapel Hill Immersive Modeling Program (or CHIMP for short) is a virtu...
