A paper from Evan Suma, David Krum and Mark Bolas of ICT’s MxR lab received the Best Tech-Note Award at the IEEE Symposium on 3D User Interfaces in Singapore. The paper, Effects of Redirection on Spatial Orientation in Real and Virtual Environments, describes an experiment probing the relationship between the real world and virtual world models for spatial orientation using a pointing task during which participants were redirected. In an effort to create the illusion of being in a virtual space that is larger than the real world space it is housed in, this research aims to discover how redirecting users in a virtual environment impacts their spatial orientation in the real world. Samantha Finkelstein of UNC Charlotte was a co-author on the tech-note, which contained unpublished preliminary results of research or design work.
