AN ADVANCED VIRTUAL REALITY MULTIMODAL INTERFACE FOR DESIGN
Recent research efforts have shown how the use of Virtual Reality (VR) and 3D input devices can significantly aid the initial design phases providing designers with tools that support their natural attitude towards creativity. The system here documented pushes this approach further by introducing a Multimodal Interface for an immersive design tool. The system becomes a valid aid for to the user’s creativity and it provides a powerful support to the user’s sensorial system by providing an interface mechanism founded upon the effective backing of human communication patterns. This allows both a major decrease of user’s fatigue, due to increased ergonomics within the design workplace, and an important incensement of the overall efficiency.
