We examine a class of techniques for 3D object manipulation on mobile devices, in which the device’s physical motion is applied to 3D objects displayed on the device itself. This “local coupling” between input and display creates specific challenges compared to manipulation techniques designed for monitor-based or immersive virtual environments. Our work focuses specifically on the mapping between device motion and object motion. We review existing manipulation techniques and introduce a formal… 
A Survey on 3D Virtual Object Manipulation: From the Desktop to Immersive Virtual Environments

Combining multi-touch input and device movement for 3D manipulations in mobile augmented reality environments
A user evaluation on a docking task revealed that combining multi-touch and device movement yields the best task completion time and efficiency and using only the device movement and orientation is more intuitive and performs worse only in large rotations.
Empirical evaluation of mapping functions for navigation in virtual reality using phones with integrated sensors
An extensive user study is performed to explore different aspects related to the travel techniques in terms of degrees of freedom, mapping functions, and there is a clear tendency from the users to prefer the mobile roll as the desired mapping.

Spatial input device structure and bimanual object manipulation in virtual environments
The goal of this work is to study the effects of input device structure for complex interaction tasks on user performance, and it may be advantageous to structure an input device such that the relation between its frame of reference and the type of action matches the corresponding frame ofreference and motion type of the virtual object being manipulated.
