||MULTIMEDIA AND VIRTUAL REALITY : DESIGNING MULTISENSORY USER INTERFACES
Author: Alistair Sutcliffe
Description: This book is about the design of advanced user interfaces. Three themes are explored: First, a theory-based approach to user interface design. The second theme is multimedia interface design: models, principles and a design process for multimedia presentation and dialogue. The third theme, virtual reality, is introduced using the same approach whereby theory motivates the design method. Guidelines cover the design of user presence, social agents, virtual environments, and user support. Multisensory interaction is about theory- motivated design that advances HCI Methodology, practical design, and evaluation methods for multimedia and virtual reality.
