Interaction with a Virtual Environment
Interaction with a virtual environment is the most important feature of virtual reality, which requires the computer to respond to user’s actions. The mode of interaction with a computer is determined by the type of the user interface. The three most important aspects of interaction are manipulation of objects within the virtual environment, navigation through the virtual environment and communication with other entities existing in the virtual environment. All three aspects are the subject of this chapter.
