A dual-mode user interface for accessing 3D content

In “A dual-mode user interface for accessing 3D content on the world wide web,” Jacek Jankowski and Stefan Decker at the Digital Enterprise Research Institute, NUI Galway, Ireland, present a novel strategy for accessing integrated information spaces, where hypertext and 3D graphics data are simultaneously available and linked.

They describe a user interface that has two modes between which a user can switch anytime: the driven by simple hypertext-based interactions “don't-make-me-think” mode, where a 3D scene is embedded in hypertext and the more immersive 3D “take-me-to-the-Wonderland” mode, which immerses the hypertextual annotations into the 3D scene.

A user study is presented, which characterizes the user interface in terms of its efficiency and usability.
