Abstract

In this paper we describe object selection techniques and metaphors for virtual environments (VEs). By combining and extending known techniques, we introduce an improved virtual pointer metaphor which enhances interactive object selection. The extension of the virtual pointer metaphor is based on a bendable ray, which is visualized by a quadratic beziér curve and points to the selectable object closest to the additionally visualized direction ray of the pointer. Strategies for determining this object are discussed and compared.
