Cyberstilo©. Towards an ergonomic and aesthetic wireless 3D-pen
This paper presents the development of a new wireless interaction device named Cyberstilo©. Virtual environments have matured during the last decade providing sophisticated solutions for exploring and experiencing 3D space in a more intuitive and natural way. Adequate interaction devices allowed the user to manipulate objects and navigate efficiently through space although having been designed for specific application scenarios. However, with its maturity new application areas of virtual reality target at multidisciplinary fields, where cultural, aesthetical, ergonomical, technical, functional and commercial requirements are becoming more important. Especially for designers aesthetics and ergonomics play an important role during the styling phase. The Cyberstilo© was specifically designed for combining ergonomical and aesthetical characterristics of interaction devices which are missing in the state-of-the-art of interaction devices.
