Transcript of Interaction in virtual reality

2000 1975 presented by Interactions in virtual reality History of Virtual Reality Technology and implementation Applications of Virtual Reality Virtual world Immersion Sensory feedback Features Interaction The content of virtual reality.

Imaginary or real world

Defining rules Physical immersion Mental immersion Body senses involved. Eg, haptic, visual

Get information. Eg, location

Full body immersion vs some senses only Not differentiable from really world

Not mandatory Unique feature
input(command virtual reality)
Actions such as position, movement
Output (obtain the feedback)
by participants’ senses. Manipulation Change the objects or environment in VR Navigation Change viewpoint Participants communicate among themselves through VR Person to person 1960 1965 1960 1980 1985 1990 1995 1961 1965 1966 1979 1986 1992 1999 (cc) image retrieved from http://www.medienkunstnetz.de/works/sensorama/ Morton Heilig built the Sensorama, an early Virtual Reality Device. Philco Corporation engineers, Comeau and Bryan, built the first Head Mounted Display (HMD) which they called Headsight. Ivan Sutherland introduced his concept of the Ultimate Display at the International Federation for Information Processing (IFIP) Congress.

by which an abstract description of a scene is
converted to an image.”
(Crockett, 1997, p819) Military Military Scientific Visualization Medical Scientific Visualization Military Virtual Reality Training Simulations are widely used in the military for training personnel in the use of land, sea and air vehicles, as well as on the ground battlefield simulation. Augmented Reality Headsets can be used to provide information to soldiers in the field and are currently being used by the air force. Medical Virtual Reality has been used to provide exposure therapy for patients facing certain phobias and other psychological conditions. Scientific Visualization Certain concepts and data in the various fields of science are hard to represent through traditional means. Many fields, including physics, biology, chemistry, etc. use Virtual Environments to store and share scientific data. http://static.neatorama.com/images/2007-05/cave-3d-visual-genomics.jpg http://www.engineeringchallenges.org/File.aspx?id=11019 http://os.typepad.com/my_weblog/images/cave.jpg http://www.scienceclarified.com/images/uesc_10_img0596.jpg http://msnbcmedia4.msn.com/j/msnbc/Components/Photos/070112/070112_virtual_reality_hmed_8a.grid-6x2.jpg http://img.tfd.com/cde/_GLOVE.GIF Image retrieved from http://science.howstuffworks.com/virtual-military2.htm Molecular Rendering age retrieved from https://wci.llnl.gov/codes/visit/gallery.html Why VR could be improved
from what it is now
(in the future) Virtual Reality depends on a lot of technology and computer technicalities to be implemented.
As technology improves, the corresponding technologies that VR utilizes will help VR to be more “real” to users and also more interactive. http://www.youtube.com/ watch?v=Y-P1zZAcPuw advantages and disadvantages of VR Advantages Disadvantage User-friendly- It does not require one to be a technical expert in Virtual Reality to use the system

Has many applications

High level of interaction Relatively high Cost

Current technology and computational power is not powerful enough to effectively implement in terms of hardware and software. http://perspectives.3ds.com/wp-content/uploads/Firsthand_04bis.jpg http://www.saraproft.org/wp-content/uploads/active_worlds.jpg http://blog.kenperlin.com/wp-content/uploads/2010/11/vr-training.jpg Data Processing

In the past, simulation was only possible by using raw material to try to create a real environment for staff to practice on.

Two of the many aspects of the society that require simulation of some sort for training were the healthcare faculty and the military force. Hence, the main problem was safety as training seem to pose some kind of risk to parties. However, with virtual reality, this problem can be easily solved.

Virtual reality however, does not only solve this problem, but brings about more benefits to us.

But first, let us get a brief idea on the
history of virtual reality. Chen Peng
