3D Object Clouds: Viewing Virtual Objects in Interactive Clouds on Mobile Devices
MetadataShow full item record
Given the expanding use of 3D Objects in a variety of fields such as animation, gaming, virtual worlds, commerce, augmented reality and 3D printing, we propose a novel system for object browsing and searching. Specifically, the system packs 3D objects into an interactive cloud view for browsing and searching. We designed it as a novel way to increase searching efficiency and engagement while providing a visually-engaging layout, and we later evaluated this by conducting user studies. We show that our system can significantly decrease search time compared to the classic grid-based layout, and it has been suggested by subjects that they feel cloud-based searching is more interesting and visually-engaging.
