Pinch Keyboard: Natural Text Input for Immersive Virtual Environments
2001) Pinch Keyboard: Natural Text Input for Immersive Virtual Environments. Technical Report TR-01-15, Computer Science, Virginia Tech. (
Text entry may be needed for system control tasks in immersive virtual environments, but no efficient and usable techniques exist. We present the pinch keyboard interaction technique, which simulates a standard QWERTY keyboard using Pinch Gloves™ and 6 DOF trackers. The system includes visual and auditory feedback and a simple method of calibration.
