Abstract:


    Distributed VR promises to change the way we work and collaborate [Singhal and Zyda 1999]. In this sketch we will extend the accessibility of the virtual world originally developed in [Larsen and Eriksen 1998] by introducing the use of the modern cellular phone as a platform for primitive interfaces to VR applications. We believe that our use of a cellular phone has led to the first completely pocketable platform for VR user interfaces.
