Abstract
We present several novel ways of interaction and navigation in virtual worlds. Using the optical tracking system of our four-sided Definitely Affordable Virtual Environment (DAVE), we designed and implemented navigation and movement controls using the user's gestures and postures. Our techniques are more natural and intuitive than a standard 3D joystick-based approach, which compromises the immersion's impact.
