Augmenting a Laser Pointer with a Diffraction Grating for Monoscopic 6DOF Detection Latoschik Marc Erich Bomberg Elmar This article illustrates the detection of 6 degrees of freedom (DOF) for Virtual Environment interactions using a modified simple laser pointer device and a camera. The laser pointer is combined with a diffraction rating to project a unique laser grid onto the projection planes used in projection-based immersive VR setups. The distortion of the projected grid is used to calculate the translational and rotational degrees of freedom required for human-computer interaction purposes. 6DOF detection Virtual Environment diffraction grating interaction laser pointer 004 periodical academic journal JVRB - Journal of Virtual Reality and Broadcasting 4(2007) 14 2008 1860-2037 urn:nbn:de:0009-6-12754 10.20385/1860-2037/4.2007.14 latoschik2008
