Immersed in Software Structures: A Virtual Reality Approach

  title={Immersed in Software Structures: A Virtual Reality Approach},
  author={R. Oberhauser and C. Lecon},
  booktitle={ACHI 2017},
Program code has been inherently challenging to visualize due to its abstract nature. With the advent of affordable virtual reality (VR) hardware products, the use of VR has become a feasible option for software tools. In this paper, we describe a VR approach for visualizing internal program code structures and evaluate its suitability for selected software development and education tasks. VR efficiency and effectiveness was equivalent to mouse and screen mechanisms, but provided an enhanced… Expand
