This project aggregates various independent subprojects to generate base technology for seamless integration of well know desktop metaphors into virtual environments as well as intuitive interaction metaphors.
The window-into-a-virtual-world is a project to extend an existing 3D visualization tool to support Powerwall-, CAVE-environments and ART Tracking devices.
The XinCave integrates the data represented from a X-Server on display into CAVE (Cave Automatic Virtual Environment). The data is to be represented as a texture mapped onto object(e.g. plane) in the virtual space. So the user can see a virtual desktop, placed somewhere in the virtual world. In a future SEP this desktop have to be made able to response to user interaction directly in the CAVE.
