Three-dimensional virtual environments are present in many different applications, being used even in small handheld devices. To navigate in these environments using such devices, most of current solutions rely on multi-touch interactions. However, previous research works have already stated that multi-touch gestures on smartphones are not always feasible.

We present ThumbCam, a novel single-touch technique for camera manipulation on 3D virtual environments. With our solution, the user is able to move and look around and circle points of interest, while interacting using only his thumb.

How to interact:
– Drag: rotates
– Double-tap: toggles between look-around and scrutinize
– Hold + drag: moves towards specific point
– Tap + touch: moves up/down and left/right

* The virtual environment is from the Oculus Rift SDK. *
* We would like to thank Manta Studios for letting us use their developer account to publish our demo. *
