In this paper we describe a demo setup showing the potential usefulness of a novel single-handed manipulation technique, designed to be used with immersive Virtual Environments. The technique allows manipulation control over objects in the scene through the use of a single 3D widget, allowing easy and separated control of translation, rotation and scaling actions. The goal is to provide an intuitive, easy-to-use and accurate way to perform simple manipulation tasks using only one hand. User tests demonstrated that the widget is intuitive and effective.

Abstract

In this paper we describe a demo setup showing the potential usefulness of a novel single-handed manipulation technique, designed to be used with immersive Virtual Environments. The technique allows manipulation control over objects in the scene through the use of a single 3D widget, allowing easy and separated control of translation, rotation and scaling actions. The goal is to provide an intuitive, easy-to-use and accurate way to perform simple manipulation tasks using only one hand. User tests demonstrated that the widget is intuitive and effective.
