Everyday Proxy Objects for Virtual Reality Workshop @ CHI'21 CHI'21 5/2021.


Using everyday objects as proxies for interaction with virtual objects is a good way to take advantage of tangible interaction without having exact replicas on hand. Since it is not possible to have the exact physical replica in place for every application, everyday objects located in the environment must be identified that are suitable for interaction. The objects must be such that interaction with them feels as realistic as possible and the user experience is not significantly worse compared to interaction with an exact replica. While there are already several studies on this in VR and video see-through AR, very little research has been done in the area of optical see-through AR, although this area is becoming more and more prominent.
