Reconfigurable tangible devices for 3D virtual object manipulation by single or multiple users

Laurent Aguerreche, Thierry Duval, Anatole Lécuyer
2010 Proceedings of the 17th ACM Symposium on Virtual Reality Software and Technology - VRST '10  
In this paper we introduce the concept of a Reconfigurable Tangible Device for manipulation of 3D objects in virtual environments by single or multiple users.  ...  Due to its simple shape the Reconfigurable Tangible Device can be attached to any 3D virtual object. Then, it can fully define the motion of the virtual object in 6 Degrees of Freedom.  ...  Therefore, in this paper, we introduce a novel concept of reconfigurable tangible interface that can match many shapes of 3D objects, for the purpose of object manipulation by single or multiple users  ...

Evaluation of a Reconfigurable Tangible Device for Collaborative Manipulation of Objects in Virtual Reality [article]

Laurent Aguerreche, Thierry Duval, Anatole Lécuyer
2011 Computer Graphics and Visual Computing  
In this paper we introduce an evaluation of a Reconfigurable Tangible Device (RTD) for collaborative manipulation of objects in virtual environments.  ...  The shape of the tangible triangle can be reconfigured at any time as its branches can be shrunk or stretched by users at will.  ...  Interaction metaphors that are usually used for single-user 3D interaction, such as virtual hands, virtual rays or virtual 3D cursors, must be adapted for collaborative 3D virtual manipulation.  ...
