Object Selection Techniques for 3D Virtual Environments

The Graphics and Experiential Media (GEM) Lab at the Faculty of Computer Science at Dalhousie University is recruiting participants to take part in a research study to explore the use of different techniques for selecting objects in 3D immersive virtual environments. We are looking for participants who are at least 18 years old, have reasonable vision and head mobility, and are right-handed.

During the study, you will wear a head mounted virtual reality (VR) display and select virtual objects of different sizes and shapes using various selection techniques. We will be tracking the movement and orientation of the VR display and a hand-held pointing device. After the VR portion of the study, you will be asked to complete a short questionnaire about your experiences performing the selection tasks. All recorded information will be anonymised.

The study will be conducted in the Mona Campbell Building at Dalhousie University and will take around one hour to complete. There is $15 compensation for participating, and the results of the study may lead to improved interaction techniques for commercial VR gaming and work environments. If you wish, you can also sign up to be informed when the results of the study are published.

If you are interested in participating, please contact Dr. Joseph Malloch (malloch@dal.ca).
