Title:3D modeling is not for WIMPS
Authors: Silvia Scali ; Mark Wright ; Ann Marie Shillito

Publication Title:Proceedings HCI International Conference
Publication Type:Conference Paper Publication Status:Published
This study compares a traditional 3D WIMP (Window Icon Menu Pointer) modeller to a prototype of a novel system with a 6DOF haptic feedback device, stereovision and a co-located display, both in quantitative and qualitative terms. The novel system was conceived to overcome limitations of traditional interaction techniques and devices when dealing with three-dimensions. Experimental results confirm the fundamental role of spatial input for 3D modelling and the significant contribution of haptics and stereovision to qualitative and quantitative performance. A review of relevant research and motivations for the study is presented along with a discussion of main outcomes.
