Session/Category Title:   Portable VR



    Virtual environments (VEs) like the projection-based Responsive Workbench have greatly enhanced the interactive visualization and manipulation of 3D objects. In these configurations, the classical desktop interaction techniques have to be reconsidered. In particular, a simple operation like text typing, although needed for basic operations like saving one’s work under a specific file name or entering a precise numerical value inside an application, is still problematic.
