Intercept Tags: Enhancing Intercept-based Systems
In a previous Friday Forum talk we discussed how we were able to utilize the well known technique of OpenGL intercept to display and interact with MATLAB simulations in the DiVE, our Virtual Reality system, through the ML2VR framework. In this talk we discuss our latest contributions to this topic, which will soon be presented at the ACM VRST conference. We present intercept tags, which are OpenGL geometries that are interpreted instead of rendered. We have identified and developed several uses for intercept tags, including hand-off interactions, display techniques, and visual enhancements. Our results show that intercept tags significantly improve user performance and experience.
