Abstract

In this demonstration, we present WiiView, a view control interface for 3D tele-immersive (3DTI) environments. This interface allows the user to intuitively manipulate the virtual camera and graphical objects in a 3D tele-immersive virtual space, thus significantly enhancing the viewing experience for users in 3DTI collaboration. We have used WiiView in a dance class for creative choreography in Spring 2008 at University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign. It allows for great flexibility, usability, and portability, as the dancers reported. Furthermore, the interface has become an interesting creativity tool for digital choreographers, as it creates a new element in the design space when dancers control the virtual view change and perform physical body movement simultaneously.
