The exploration of 3D environments using 6 degrees-of-freedom interaction is still a challenge since users easily become disoriented. In this paper we discuss the benefits of the whole-body awareness in 3D interactive applications. We propose a technique for navigation and selection in 3D environments which explores the peephole metaphor with a tablet PC.In practice, the tablet is held by the participant who moves it around and points it in any direction for visualization and interaction. The
