HCI'93 VR Exhibition: Interaction in a Multi-user Virtual World

This demonstration will consist of four or five small concept demonstrators which show how our spatial model of interaction, using aura, focus and nimbus, might work in a multi-user virtual world. The main points of the demonstrations are a bulletin board which reacts to the proximity and focus of the user, a highly populated terrain where inhabitants react to the nimbus of the user and where tools are used to manipulate this nimbus and a world showing the effects of different types of barrier on focus and nimbus.
