Abstract

This study investigates sliding as a walking-in-place (WIP) method for virtual reality navigation using the Wizdish. The Wizdish is a novel WIP device built for home usage. Two WIP methods, sliding and marching, were compared for naturalness, presence, and surface difference. The sliding technique used on the Wizdish was found to be significantly more disruptive during the experience compared to marching. This could be due to the size of the Wizdish, restricting the users stride, or due to a longer acclimatization time.
