By Doug Bowman,Ernst Kruijff,Joseph J., Jr. LaViola,Ivan P. Poupyrev

Here’s what 3 pioneers in special effects and human-computer interplay need to say approximately this book:

“What a travel de force—everything one could want—comprehensive, encyclopedic, and authoritative.”

Jim Foley

“At final, a publication in this very important, rising sector. it is going to be an essential reference for the practitioner, researcher, and pupil attracted to 3D consumer interfaces.”

Andy van Dam

“Finally, the ebook we have to bridge the dream of 3D photos with the user-centered truth of interface layout. A considerate and useful advisor for researchers and product builders. Thorough evaluate, nice examples.”

Ben Shneiderman

As 3D know-how turns into to be had for quite a lot of purposes, its winning deployment would require well-designed person interfaces (UIs). particularly, software program and builders might want to comprehend the interplay ideas and strategies odd to a 3D setting. This knowing, after all, builds on usability event with second UIs. however it additionally contains new and particular demanding situations and possibilities. Discussing all correct facets of interplay, more advantageous via instructive examples and directions, 3D person Interfaces contains a unmarried resource for the newest conception and perform of 3D UIs.

Many humans have already got visible 3D UIs in computer-aided layout, radiation treatment, surgical simulation, facts visualization, and virtual-reality leisure. the following iteration of computing device video games, cellular units, and laptop purposes will also function 3D interplay. The authors of this e-book, each one on the vanguard of analysis and improvement within the younger and dynamic box of 3D UIs, convey the right way to produce usable 3D purposes that convey on their huge, immense promise.

Coverage includes:

  • The psychology and human elements of varied 3D interplay tasks
  • Different methods for comparing 3D UIs
  • Results from empirical reviews of 3D interplay techniques
  • Principles for selecting applicable enter and output units for 3D systems
  • Details and tips about imposing universal 3D interplay techniques
  • Guidelines for choosing the simplest interplay innovations for universal 3D tasks
  • Case experiences of 3D UIs in real-world applications

To assist you retain velocity with this fast-evolving box, the book’s website,, will provide info and hyperlinks to the newest 3D UI examine and applications.
