Many interface devices for virtual reality (such as head-mounted displays, immersive rooms like the CAVE 99, and BOOMs) provide full immersion inside the virtual environment. Full immersion is appropriate for numerous applications that emphasize navigating through a virtual space. However, a large class of problems exists for which navigation is not the critical issue. Rather, these applications demand a fine-granularity visualization and interaction with virtual objects and scenes.
