Article
This paper presents two experiments measuring the impact of a virtual nose on simulator sickness and game experience in two virtual reality games. The pilot study contrasts a design implementation from the sensorial conflict theory (habituation) to one design suggestion from the rest-frame hypothesis (virtual nose). Habituation contributed signific...

Sketching is a natural and intuitive communication tool used for expressing concepts or ideas which are difficult to communicate through text or speech alone. Sketching is therefore used for a variety of purposes, from the expression of ideas on two-dimensional (2D) physical media, to object creation, manipulation, or deformation in three-dimension...

This paper proposes a 2d sketching tool and an immersive 3d sketch library as an approach to easily create and access documents (i.e. sketches). The sketch library allows users to store, arrange and assemble their own sketches and others' in theoretically unlimited space. A user can get an idea about the general activities of all users since the sk...

Computer modelling of 2D drawings is becoming increasingly popular in modern design as can be witnessed in the shift of modern computer modelling applications from software requiring specialised training to ones targeted for the general consumer market. Despite this, traditional sketching is still prevalent in design, particularly so in the early d...
Conference Paper
This project was concerned with the development of physical sculptures from the motion of an Iaido sword. Iaido is a Japanese traditional martial art concerned with moving a sword and performing a cutting motion at the same time. It is practiced to prepare the swordsman for a surprise attack. All phases of the stroke have to be absolutely flawless...
Conference Paper
With the growing relevance of human interaction with infocommunications in general and augmented/virtual environments in particular, it is becoming increasingly important to provide users with a “virtual physics” capable of emulating the richness and subtle informativeness of multimodal feedback in the physical world. In this paper, we describe an...
Conference Paper
In theory, the potential to use virtual reality systems for creating visually rich and free-spirited models and prototypes is high. In contrast, immersive modelling is not relevant in today's design practice and design researchers are often sceptical if it will ever be possible to use virtual environments (i.e. virtual material) with the same fidel...

Die von Mark Weiser 1988 ersonnene Vision eines allgegenwärtigen Computers wird zunehmend Wirklichkeit. Wenn Computer in Alltagsgegenständen verschwinden, wenn »intelligente« Objekte die Umwelt bevölkern, wenn der gesamte Körper und seine Bewegungen in der Interaktion mit Computerprogrammen eingesetzt werden, dann stellen sich neue Herausforderunge...
Conference Paper
Due to its immense visualization and interaction possibilities virtual reality (VR) is often regarded as the “ultimate” future technology for product development and engineering tasks. Although the majority of current industrial use cases for VR lie in fields of reviewing and validating, this article argues that VR has enormous potential to support...

It is industrial practice to conduct Design Reviews of product models by means of Virtual Reality (VR) systems. Especially in the car industry CAVEs are mandatory tools to visualize the current state of product models (digital prototypes). However such systems usually display only the geometric product structure as it is imported from CAD systems....
Conference Paper
The spatial and semantic integration of tangible user interfaces (TUI) into virtual environments is a promising approach to enhance mixed reality-applications with dynamic three-dimensional graphics and graspable controls. Although various software frameworks for virtual reality periphery and tangible interaction exist, a novel framework which prov...

In this paper we address the question whether automatic shape creation using sketched strokes as input in an immersive 3D environment supports the sketching process in early phases of product design. To investigate this question, model creation and deformation algorithms of the desktop sketch-based modeling tool FiberMesh [NISA07] were transferred...

So far, studies on general judgments of products mainly focused on usability. Only recently, product aesthetics is considered as well. In this context, both information on the visual aesthetics of products and product prototypes are important issues. Several scales exist which measure visual aesthetics of products. However, no scale on the aestheti...

"Intuitive to use" is so often assigned to tangible user interfaces (TUIs) and physical interaction, for example, in conference lectures, informal communication and in scientific publications, that it seems obvious that physicality evokes intuitive use. However, on closer inspection the topic becomes less obvious. It appears that the use of the ter...
Conference Paper
"Intuitive Use" is increasingly mentioned as being a requirement for product design. However, it has not been established as a scientific term in the HCI community so far. Even though this disparity exists, practitioners need to know how intuitive use can be defined, how it can be measured, and how it can be designed. In usability engineering, seve...

In this paper we present a general definition of the concept 'intuitive use of user interfaces' on the basis of our current interdisciplinary work. 'Intuitive use' is regarded as a characteristic of human -machine systems. It refers to a special kind of interaction process between users and technical systems that use the users' intuition. The main...
Conference Paper
One of the goals of tangible interaction is to build more intuitive interfaces. This paper gives a definition of intuitivity and presents a continuum of knowledge serving as a classification for intuitive interaction. Against the background of the continuum recent taxonomies for tangible interaction are reviewed. A new approach for classifying tang...
Article
Intuitive Benutzung technischer Systeme ist ein bislang noch sehr vages und wissenschaftlich und methodisch schwer greifbares Konzept. Dennoch scheint ein Design, „das intuitive Benutzung erlaubt“, ein überzeugendes Verkaufsargument zu sein. Da derzeit keine Kriterien spezifiziert sind, die angeben, wie intuitiv benutzbare Interfaces gestaltet werd...
