  • 3-Hand Manipulation of Virtual Objects 

    Aguerreche, Laurent; Duval, Thierry; Lécuyer, Anatole (The Eurographics Association, 2009)
    In this paper we introduce a new 3D interaction technique called '3-Hand Manipulation', for multi-user collaborative manipulation of 3D objects. The 3-Hand Manipulation relies on the use of three manipulation points that ...

    Kitazaki, Michiteru; Kimura, Takuya; Inoue, Yasuyuki; Matsuzaki, Naoyuki (The Eurographics Association, 2009)
    Human postural control is a multi-modal process with visual and vestibular information. Thus, postural sway is induced by visual motion as well as vestibular stimulation. The purpose of this study was to measure individual ...

    Bruder, Gerd; Steinicke, Frank; Hinrichs, Klaus; Lappe, Markus (The Eurographics Association, 2009)
    Immersive virtual environment (IVE) systems allow users to control their virtual viewpoint by moving their tracked head and by walking through the real world, but usually the virtual space which can be explored by walking ...
  • Characteristics of Perception of Stiffness by Varied Tapping Velocity and Penetration in Using Event-Based Haptic 

    Ikeda, Yuto; Hasegawa, Shoichi (The Eurographics Association, 2009)
    There are many works that uses event-based haptic to improve realism. We intend to investigate how the hardness presentation improves using event-based haptic, and how the perception of stiffness varies through presented ...
  • The Effects of Teleportation on Recollection of the Structure of a Virtual World 

    Cliburn, Daniel; Rilea, Stacy; Parsons, David; Surya, Prakash; Semler, Jessica (The Eurographics Association, 2009)
    Teleportation is a virtual world navigation technique that allows users to travel at an infinite velocity from one lo-cation to another. Unfortunately, teleportation is known to cause disorientation in many users. This ...
  • Higher Levels of Immersion Improve Procedure Memorization Performance 

    Bowman, Doug A.; Sowndararajan, Ajith; Ragan, Eric D.; Kopper, Regis (The Eurographics Association, 2009)
    Researchers have proposed that immersion could have advantages for tasks involving abstract mental activities, such as conceptual learning; however, there are few empirical results that support this idea. We hypothesized ...
  • Tree-shaded screen: A Propeller type screen for Public Art 

    Kunihiro, Nishimura; Suzuki, Yasuhiro; Tokuda, Yutaka; Iida, Tomohiro; Kajinami, Takashi; Tanikawa, Tomohiro; Hirose, Michitaka (The Eurographics Association, 2009)
    Tree-shaded screen is a novel artwork for the public space. One can also think of it as a novel virtual reality system. The artwork consists of a surround couch, a column, and a propeller with six blades. When we sit down ...
  • A Modular Framework for Distributed VR Interaction Processing 

    Assenmacher, Ingo; Raffin, Bruno (The Eurographics Association, 2009)
    Interactions are a key part of Virtual Reality systems and can lead to complex software assembly for multi-modal and multi-site collaborative environments. This is even harder, when each participant is interacting in the ...
  • Desktop Integration in Graphics Environments 

    Ullrich, Torsten; Settgast, Volker; Ofenböck, Christian; Fellner, Dieter W. (The Eurographics Association, 2009)
    In this paper, we present the usage of the Remote Desktop Protocol to integrate arbitrary, legacy applications in various environments. This approach accesses a desktop on a real computer or within a virtual machine. The ...
  • Multi-scale Manipulation in Indoor Scenes with theWorld in Miniature Metaphor 

    Trueba, Ramon; Andujar, Carlos; Argelaguet, Ferran (The Eurographics Association, 2009)
    The World in Miniature Metaphor (WIM) allows users to select, manipulate and navigate efficiently in virtual environments. In addition to the first-person perspective offered by typical VR applications, the WIM offers a ...
  • Collaborative Interaction in Co-Located Two-User Scenarios 

    Salzmann, Holger; Jacobs, Jan; Froehlich, Bernd (The Eurographics Association, 2009)
    We investigated the utility of co-located collaborative interaction metaphors for assembly tasks in the automotive industry. In a first expert review, we compared the usability of a regular single-user stereoscopic system ...
  • The 3D Sketch Slice: Precise 3D Volume Annotations in Virtual Environments 

    Schild, Jonas; Holtkämper, Thorsten; Bogen, Manfred (The Eurographics Association, 2009)
    In the oil and gas application domain, there is a need for 3D volume annotations to sketch out uncertainty regions in seismic data sets. Together with geo-science experts, we identified actual requirements for efficient ...
  • Echocardiogram Simulator based on Computer-Simulated Heart 

    Hirota, Koichi; Okada, J.; Washio, T.; Hisada, T.; Sugiura, S. (The Eurographics Association, 2009)

    Chen, Jian; Kostandov, Mykhaylo; Pivkin, Igor V.; Riskin, Daniel K.; Willis, D. J.; Swartz, Sharon M.; Laidlaw, David H. (The Eurographics Association, 2009)
    We present an experiment to study two approaches for modeling complex skeletal motion of a bat in flight. Both the domain-enhancement approach and the data-fidelity approach use proper orthogonal decomposition (POD) to ...
  • Basic Characteristics of Shear Tactile Stimulus Generated by Rotating Contactors 

    Yamaguchi, Tomoyuki; Ikei, Yasushi (The Eurographics Association, 2009)
