Abstract

It is well-known that employing the Walking-in-Place (WIP) interface can significantly reduce VR sickness in addition to promoting the sense of presence, immersion, and natural interaction. In this poster, we re-examine the conditions for which WIP will effectively reduce VR sickness. In particular, we investigate and compare the cases of applying WIP to navigating on flat terrain vs. up-and-down ramps with respect to the sickness reduction effect. We point out that naively designed WIP/navigation content has the possibility of actually worsening the VR sickness due to the sensory and reality mismatch between the flat real operating environment and the inclined virtual terrain.
