    Virtual reality interfaces using Tweek

Session/Category Title:   Portable VR



    Developers of virtual environments often face a difficult problem: users must have some way to interact with the virtual world. The application developers must determine how to map available inputs (buttons, gestures, etc.) to actions within the virtual environment (VE). As a result, user interfaces may be limited by the input hardware available with a given virtual reality (VR) system.
