Generating graphs in virtual reality

Abstract

Recent advances in Head-mounted Display (HMD) for Virtual Reality have been phenomenal. The quality of the latest HMDs such as Oculus Rift, HTC Vive and Sony PlayStation VR is high. These highly immersive devices create educational opportunities as well as challenges. Specifically, we can create or view graphs in a virtual environment. This innovative technology of generating graphs opens up a new horizon. We can plot 3D graphs so that the user can view the graphs from any angles and examine the graphs virtually. Furthermore, dynamic data can be summarized into diagrams and graphs. If such data are fed into the virtual system, we can view the change of the graphs virtually. In this paper, we will demonstrate the presentation of graphs using HMDs in Virtual Reality. We will illustrate hand-drawings and system-generated graphs in virtual spaces. Students' views on creating graphs in Virtual Reality will be examined. An overview of VR devices and software to produce graphs will also be discussed. Copyright © 2019 IADIS Press.
