The 2010 IEEE Symposium on 3D User Interfaces ran the symposium's first 3DUI Grand Prize, a contest for innovative, practical solutions to classic 3DUI problems. The authors describe the rationale for the first contest and give an analysis of all submissions. Each category's winners also discuss their solutions.
