Operate-Then-Select Paradigm

The operate-then-select paradigm is an interface method not often used in modern VR, although it sees extensive use in CAD. It is an interface method whereby the operation type is chosen ? create a circle, curve, dimension something, and then afterwards the object or plains to apply that operation to, are selected.

As VR advances, this interface method may see greater use in VR, as glove and gesture based interfaces become more commonplace.

Like most edited collections of articles from authors of mixed backgrounds, what we get is something of a mixed bag. From the Half Life 2 review that feels a burning need to instruct the reader in the definition of a seesaw and how they operate in the playground, through to down to earth reviews of playing experiences such as World of Goo.

Where am I? Using Feature Cues for Navigation
The brain is built to handle such a 3D world, and employs a number of tricks to counter disorientation. These are tricks we can utilise in 3D spatial simulations, to help minimise disorientation there; but first we have to understand what the brain's tricks are, and how they operate.

At CHI 2009 (computer Human Interaction conference,) many new modalities of interface were demonstrated. One of the more practical was the product of a team from ETH Zurich's Wearable Computing lab. Vaguely resembling the bastard child of a set of safety glasses and a HMD, the EOG goggles are an eye movement tracking system, that requires no external hardware to operate.
