Abstract : This demonstration provides experimentation on several versions of the Hand Navigator, a peripheral device allowing to control a virtual hand with fine dexterity. Our devices, as easy to hold and to release as a mouse, integrate various small sensors enabling the simultaneous control of a large number of degrees of freedom. Our demonstration invites users to experience new ways of interaction with virtual environments through relevant examples of manipulation tasks such as playing with deformable objects.
