Investigating Tablet-Based Spatial Interaction

One of my research interests lies in the usage of spatial interaction with mobile devices for immersive 3D visualizations. To contribute to a better understanding of this interaction style, we implemented example visualizations on a spatially tracked tablet and investigated their usage and potential.

The official video gives a short overview of the project.
These images show the three visualization types that we implemented for our prototype.
This is our technical setup: The tablet is tracked in 3D space, the visual content is virtually placed on a table.
Here you can see some of the patterns that we detected when analyzing our study data.
