Redirected walking techniques enable natural locomotion through immersive virtual environments that are considerably larger than the available real world walking space. However, the most effective strategy for steering the user remains an open question, as most previously presented algorithms simply redirect toward the center of the physical space. In this… (More)
Depth-based gesture cameras provide a promising and novel way to interface with computers. Nevertheless, this type of interaction remains challenging due to the complexity of finger interactions and the under large viewpoint variations. Existing middleware such as Intel Perceptual Computing SDK (PCSDK) or SoftKinetic IISU can provide abundant hand tracking… (More)
We present a novel approach to integrating a touch screen device into the experience of a user wearing a Head Mounted Display (HMD) in an immersive virtual reality (VR) environment with tracked head and hands.
