By Doug Bowman,Ernst Kruijff,Joseph J., Jr. LaViola,Ivan P. Poupyrev

Here’s what 3 pioneers in special effects and human-computer interplay need to say approximately this book:

“What a travel de force—everything one may want—comprehensive, encyclopedic, and authoritative.”

Jim Foley

“At final, a publication in this vital, rising sector. will probably be an vital reference for the practitioner, researcher, and scholar drawn to 3D consumer interfaces.”

Andy van Dam

“Finally, the ebook we have to bridge the dream of 3D snap shots with the user-centered fact of interface layout. A considerate and functional advisor for researchers and product builders. Thorough evaluation, nice examples.”

Ben Shneiderman

As 3D expertise turns into to be had for quite a lot of functions, its profitable deployment would require well-designed consumer interfaces (UIs). in particular, software program and builders might want to comprehend the interplay rules and methods odd to a 3D surroundings. This realizing, after all, builds on usability event with 2nd UIs. however it additionally contains new and distinctive demanding situations and possibilities. Discussing all proper features of interplay, better via instructive examples and instructions, 3D consumer Interfaces includes a unmarried resource for the newest concept and perform of 3D UIs.

Many humans have already got obvious 3D UIs in computer-aided layout, radiation treatment, surgical simulation, information visualization, and virtual-reality leisure. the subsequent iteration of desktop video games, cellular units, and computer functions will also characteristic 3D interplay. The authors of this ebook, every one on the leading edge of analysis and improvement within the younger and dynamic box of 3D UIs, express the best way to produce usable 3D purposes that convey on their huge, immense promise.

Coverage includes:

  • The psychology and human components of assorted 3D interplay tasks
  • Different techniques for comparing 3D UIs
  • Results from empirical reviews of 3D interplay techniques
  • Principles for selecting applicable enter and output units for 3D systems
  • Details and pointers on enforcing universal 3D interplay techniques
  • Guidelines for choosing the simplest interplay recommendations for universal 3D tasks
  • Case stories of 3D UIs in real-world applications

To assist you hold speed with this fast-evolving box, the book’s site, www.3dui.org, will supply details and hyperlinks to the newest 3D UI examine and applications.
