Abstract [en]

Movement, physical feedback, social interaction and vision are important factors for humans inthe real world, and therefore also in a virtual world whose aim is to mimic the real world. The effect of avirtual environment application could increase through the use of a human-computer interface that canmatch natural human capability in such areas, and several novel components are presented herein. Here,movement and feedback is gained through an omnidirectional walking surface that enables untetheredmovement throughout a virtual world without imposing physical restrictions. Although several differentapproaches exist to the mechanical problem of two-dimensional translation, an alternative top-downapproach can reduce complexity to one-dimensional space. Furthermore, interchange of subtle bodylanguage can be vital and achieved with a system that supports high fidelity in virtual texturerepresentation of users, which can be more powerful in some cases than virtual geometry. Also, a newapproach is taken to the design of a head mounted display with minimal weight through optics in the formof soft contact lenses, mounted directly on the eyes.
