Multidimensional Orientation Systems in Virtual Space on the basis of Finder

Philip Zerweck
Universität Gesamthochschule Kassel, Fachbereich Produktdesign

The work is about orientation systems meant for data files that help users to act within the frontend of computer (MacOS: Finder). The focus is also on stereoscopic visualisation systems. It is a search for possibilities of spatial graphical user interface to furnish, establish and manage personal computer environments. In the end developements are being made like e.g. digital fixtures for deskspace or a supportive agent of character. Another developed tool is the Semantic Browser. With its help it is possible to create interactively multivariate visual sensations out of a quantity of files. It is based on principal ideas on semantic dimensions of Alan Wexelblat.

Deskspace

The success of WIMP-systems is not based on the superiority of one of its parts but on their coordination and consistency. These are the demands to be fullfilled to successfully create next generation interfaces for operating systems.

As said before in this work, tools were developed to show a path to a deskspace-finder. Even the building of a complete finder was forbidden because of the scope, a valid concept is the needed starting point. This is described by a few key points: Input or output does not need any put on or buckle on components. The presentation has a bottom, a back, a top, a left and a right in the way of a stage. The viewer does not change his standpoint only the content / scene of the stage gets changed. The visualisation is based on the ideas of cellular- -- picture -- space, voxel objects and radiosity procedures.
