Interactive Navigation and Selection using Tactile and Tangible Inputs for 3D Data Exploration

Dr. Tobias Isenberg (Team AVIZ Inria-Saclay / Université Paris Saclay)
45 + 30

I will talk about the challenges for the interaction with 3D data using direct manipulation input devices such as tactile displays and tangible devices. I will address, in particular, data navigation & selection as two fundamental interaction techniques, and demonstrate example interaction designs for both. In addition, I will discuss what happens when immersive 3D display environments are combined with mobile displays for input, in particular in a stereoscopic interaction context. Finally, I will present some ideas for the potential combination of tactile with tangible input techniques to create hybrid interactions.

Tobias Isenberg is a senior research scientist at Inria, France. He received his doctoral degree from the University of Magdeburg, Germany, in 2004. Previously he held positions as post-doctoral fellow at the University of Calgary, Canada, and as assistant professor at the University of Groningen, the Netherlands. His research interests comprise topics in scientific visualization, illustrative and non-photorealistic rendering, and interactive visualization techniques. He is particularly interested in interactive visualization environments for 3D spatial data that rely on novel input paradigms such as tactile screens and tangible devices.
