Beyond Flatland - the rise of 3D user interfaces
As humans we use spatial* intelligence to navigate around the world, record information as mental models and to solve complex three-dimensional problems. Navigating virtual 3D content with common 2D interaction techniques has severe drawbacks regarding efficiency and ease of use. In this talk we will explore possibilities of using three-dimensional user interfaces which let the user interact with virtual objects, environments or information using direct 3D input in the physical or virtual space.
Seeing how complex 3D interaction concepts can be broken down to simpler problems will inspire web developers to get creative and consider creating spatial computing products with 3D web technologies. Get inspired to experiment with the techniques and explore the possibilities of the immersive web beyond flatland.
*spatial stands for "relating to or occupying space"
