ACM UIST 1997 - Worldlets: 3D thumbnails for wayfinding in virtual environments

Virtual environment landmarks are essential in wayfinding: they anchor routes through a region and provide memorable destinations to return to later. Current virtual environment browsers provide user interface menus that characterize available travel destinations via landmark textual descriptions or thumbnails images. Such characterizations lack the depth cues and context needed to reliably recognize 3D landmarks. This video introduces a new user interface affordance that captures a 3D representation of a virtual environment landmark into a 3D thumbnail, called a worldlet.
