Tangible Brush: Performing 3D Selection with Portable and Position-aware Devices

Abstract : We present the design of a 6-DOF tangible controller for 3D spatial data selection. Such selection is a primary and fundamental task in scientific visualization: it is performed prior to many other interactions. Many datasets are defined in 3D space, yet selection is often performed based on 2D input. While 2D selection may be efficient for datasets with explicit shapes, it is less efficient for data without such objects. We address this issue by combining 2D tactile with 3D tangible input to perform 3D selection in volumetric datasets.
