Personal perspective: Using modified world views to overcome real-life limitations in virtual reality
Virtual Reality opens up new possibilities as it allows to overcome real-life limitations and create novel experiences. While interacting with other people, it is beneficial to share a common view point. We modify the virtual world to allow face-to-face interaction with another person, while still retaining an optimal point of view on presented data. This is done by adapting the virtual environment independently for each user, using translation, rotation and scaling. The presented modification of the world gives a natural solution to the problems of collaborative analysis of content. It is therefore beneficial for usage in human-human interaction scenarios that support cooperative work.
