PDF: Travel in large-scale head-worn VR: Pre-oriented teleportation with WIMs and previews

Abstract

We demonstrate an interaction technique that allows a user to point at a world-in-miniature representation of a city-scale virtual environment and perform efficient and precise teleportation by pre-orienting an avatar. A preview of the post-teleport view of the full-scale virtual environment updates interactively as the user adjusts the position, yaw, and pitch of the avatar’s head with a pair of 6DoF-tracked controllers. We describe design decisions and contrast with alternative approaches to virtual travel.
