Digital map table VR: Bringing an interactive system to virtual reality
Virtual Reality has the potential to replace large, multi-screen systems due to cost, flexibility, and mobility. It is desireable to keep interaction concepts from existing systems in virtual reality and avoid having to recreate existing software solutions. We recreated an interactive table in virtual reality using the same software used for the hardware table and conducted a user study to compare the two systems. Users were able to complete all tasks on both systems and results show little difference regarding preference between the two systems. While only a few of the advantages of virtual reality were taken advantage of, the results are promising for virtual display environments in general.
