Object manipulation techniques in immersive virtual environments are either inaccurate or slow. We present a novel technique, PinNPivot, where pins are used to constrain 1DOF/2DOF/3DOF rotations. It also supports 6DOF manipulation and 3DOF translation. A comparison with three existing techniques shows that PinNPivot is significantly more accurate and faster.
