In this work, we present a simple method of "walking in place" (WIP) using the Microsoft Kinect to explore a virtual environment (VE) with a head-mounted display (HMD). Other studies have shown that WIP to explore a VE is equivalent to normal walking in terms of spatial orientation. This suggests that WIP is a promising way to explore a large VE. The(More)
When using a head-mounted display (HMD) to explore a virtual environment (VE), it is useful to navigate on foot. This aids spatial awareness because it provides the inertial cues related to physical locomotion. However, the size of the virtual environment that can be physically explored on foot can be no larger than the limits of the tracking system. One(More)
