Dimitris Grammenos, Alexandros Mourouzis, Constantine Stephanidis
2006 International Journal of Human-Computer Studies  
This paper introduces the concept of Virtual Prints (ViPs) as an intuitive metaphor for supporting interaction and navigation, as well as a number of additional tasks in virtual environments (VEs).  ...  An account of how users can interact with ViPs is provided and related issues and challenges are discussed along with techniques and methods for addressing them.  ...  Although the test environment was a single-user system, in order to simulate and demonstrate the use of ViPs in multi-user environments a number of computer-driven avatars (simulating 'other' users) were  ...
