Techniques are discussed for creating a rendered view into a 3D scene, interactively based on the locations and orientations of the observer’s head and the display surface. Stereoscopic headmounted displays (HMDs) demonstrate a simplified, special case of these techniques, because the eyes and monitors move in unison. A largely overlooked class of interactive displays uses the relative positions between the eyes and monitor as input. These displays can be stereo or monoscopic, fixed or mobile… Expand
The Effects of Changing Projection Geometry on Perception of 3D Objects on and Around Tabletops
TLDR
Using a fixed center of projection above the table reduces error and improves accuracy in most tasks, and has far-reaching implications for the design of 3D views on tables, in particular, for multi-user applications where projections that appear correct for one person will not be perceived correctly by another.

3D task performance using head-coupled stereo displays
TLDR
The characteristics of head-coupled stereo display, the issues involved in implementing it correctly, and three experiments that were conducted to investigate the value of this type of display are discussed. Expand
Supporting Multiple Off-Axis Viewpoints at a Tabletop Display

TLDR
This work presents a simplified model that compensates for off-axis viewing for a single user and extends this technique for multiple viewers interacting with the same large display, and describes several implications of the approach to collaborative activities. Expand
RCHI ‘ 93 24-29 April 1993 FISH TANK VIRTUAL REALITY
The defining characteristics of what we call “Fish Tank Virtual Reality” are a stereo image of a three dimensional (3D) scene viewed on a monitor using a perspective projection coupled to the headExpand
Fish tank virtual reality
TLDR
It is concluded thatHead coupling is probably more important than stereo in 3D visualization and that head coupling and stereo combined provide an important enhancement to monitor based computer graphics. Expand
Three Dimensional Visual Display Systems for Virtual Environments
This paper surveys three-dimensional (3D) visual display technology as it relates to realtime, interactive systems—or virtual environment systems. Five major 3D display types are examined:Expand
HoloDesk: direct 3d interactions with a situated see-through display
TLDR
A new technique for interpreting raw Kinect data is introduced to approximate and track rigid and non-rigid physical objects and support a variety of physics-inspired interactions between virtual and real. Expand
A Virtual Testbed for Fish-Tank Virtual Reality: Improving Calibration with a Virtual-in-Virtual Display
TLDR
A virtual testbed for volumetric head-tracked displays is developed that can measure calibration accuracy of the entire system in real-time and shows that stereo is important for task performance, but requires more accurate calibration, and that novice users can make effective use of perceptual calibration tools.

pCubee : evaluation of a tangible outward-facing geometric display
TLDR
The utility of outward-facing geometric displays for spatial reasoning tasks, including pCubee, were as good as using a much larger, more familiar desktop display when solving the cube comparison problem. Expand
Interaction with volumetric displays
TLDR
A suite of new selection techniques are defined, of which several are found to have significant benefits in comparison to techniques traditionally used in 3D user interfaces, and the first working interactive application, where a volumetric display is the sole device for input and display is described.

Virtual integral holography
TLDR
The primary drawbacks of holographic display - film processing turnaround time, and the difficulties of displaying scenes in full color -are obviated, and motion parallax cues provide easy 3D interpretation even for users who cannot see in stereo. Expand
Viewpoint Dependent Imaging: An Interactive Stereoscopic Display
  • S. Fisher
  • Engineering, Computer Science

  • 1983
TLDR
This imaging system is an attempt to more closely represent an observers interactive perceptual experience of the visual world by presenting sensory information cues not offered by traditional media technologies: binocular parallax, motion parallAX, and motion perspective. Expand
A head-mounted three dimensional display
TLDR
The fundamental idea behind the three-dimensional display is to present the user with a perspective image which changes as he moves, and this display depends heavily on this "kinetic depth effect". Expand

Implementation and integration of a counterbalanced CRT-based stereoscopic display for interactive viewpoint control in virtual-environment applications
TLDR
The CCSV approach is particularly well suited to applications in which 1) the user moves back and forth between virtual environment viewing and desk work, 2) high resolution views of the virtual environment are required or 3) the viewing device is to be shared among collaborators in a group setting.

Exploration and virtual camera control in virtual three dimensional environments
TLDR
This paper evaluates three distinct metaphors for exploration and virtual camera control in virtual environments using a six degree of freedom input device that has the capability to record the motion path followed during an exploration session and can be recorded and played back to create a movie.

Virtual environment display system
TLDR
A head-mounted, wide-angle, stereoscopic display system controlled by operator position, voice and gesture has been developed for use as a multipurpose interface environment and primary applications are in telerobotics, management of large-scale integrated information systems, and human factors research.
