Wloka, Matthias M. and Greenfield, Eliot (1995): The Virtual Tricorder: A Uniform Interface for Virtual Reality. In: Robertson, George G. (ed.) Proceedings of the 8th annual ACM symposium on User interface and software technology November 15 - 17, 1995, Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, United States. pp. 39-40. http://www.acm.org/pubs/articles/proceedings/uist/215585/p39-wloka/p39-wloka.pdf

We describe a new user-interface metaphor for immersive virtual reality -- the virtual tricorder. The virtual tricorder visually duplicates a six-degrees-of-freedom input device in the virtual environment. Since we map the input device to the tricorder one-to-one at all times, the user identifies the two. Thus, the resulting interface is visual as well as tactile, multipurpose, and based on a tool metaphor. It unifies many existing interaction techniques for immersive virtual reality.
