Abstract

An effect of immersion is a desirable quality in VR interfaces and its improvement has received a lot of attention in recent years. However, enhancing immersion by eliciting feelings of embodiment and presence through multimodal interactions often requires expensive and bulky dedicated tracking systems. This renders these interactions prohibitable for mobile VR platforms. Our work focused on developing a voice and motion gesture controller with tactile feedback to induce physical sensations and arouse the feeling of embodiment and presence in mobile VR platforms. A mobile virtual reality interface was designed to validate our system through a user experiment. The results indicate that the feelings of presence, embodiment and overall immersion in the mobile VR interface were increased by the use of our system.
