Spatial Representation of a Virtual World
How do you perceive space and spatial relationships between objects in a virtual environment. Rather easily if you are setting out to replicate the physical world. But that is too easy, it loses so many of the true advantages of VR, where space is irrelevant, and every room can be a TARDIS. This article looks at mapping that kind of a mess, beginning with text worlds, where such spatial irrelevancy is at its highest.

Google's YouTube service has been partnering for the last few years, with as many schools, colleges and universities as it can get to agree to record lectures, classroom sessions, guest speakers, even entire course content.

MR Aquarium
MR Aquarium was demonstrated in 2008, as a spatial VR project using multiple magic symbol displays on walls and pedestals, to bypass the problem, of turning the HUD away from the magic symbol, at which point the AR disappears.

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.

First printed in 2005, this book?s techniques are not exactly the cutting edge in terms of AR practices ? it hails from the first days of AR?s emergence. Even so, it is very comprehensive, and leads the reader from the first simple introductions, up to actual implementation of augmented reality for practical applications in immersive education and entertainment.
