Invitation to user study

Open Data Exploration in Virtual Reality (ODxVR)

In a nutshell

What: comparative user (interaction) study
Why: to investigate and evaluate the application of different virtual reality (VR) technologies
How: testing live our developed VR prototype (overall study duration ~ 45-55 min)
Who: Nico Reski, [VRxAR Labs] research group at Linnaeus University
Where: Room D2269A, D-building, Campus Växjö, Linnaeus University
When: ENDED [26.04.2017 - 21.06.2017] (sign-up via email)

In detail

Within the scope of the research interests in the VRxAR Labs research group at Linnaeus University, we are investigating the uses of different virtual reality (VR) technologies in an open data exploration scenario. Therefore we developed an interactive VR prototype that can be operated using one of three different interaction modes: 1) Interaction through a wireless gamepad, 2) interaction through vision-based motion controls using hands, and 3) interaction in a room-scale VR setup, enabling the user to walk around in a (physically limited) area while interacting using a wireless controller.

In order to collect data about the developed prototype in action, we are conducting one-on-one user interaction studies. A study session will have a duration of approximately 45 to 55 minutes. During the study session the participant will test live, hands-on, one of the three implemented interaction modes (randomly decided) of the developed VR prototype (~ 20 min), and complete a few questionnaires afterwards. No specific prior knowledge is required, everyone can participate.

If you are interested in participating, please feel free to sign up for the study. If you have any further questions, please do not hesitate to get in touch with us.
