Flexible Spaces: A Virtual Step Outside of Reality

By Khrystyna Vasylevska, Hannes Kaufmann, Mark Bolas, and Evan A. Suma


In this paper we introduce the concept of flexible spaces - a novel redirection technique that generalizes the use of overlapping (impossible) spaces and change blindness in an algorithm for dynamic layout generation. Flexible spaces is an impossible environment that violates the real world constancy in favor of providing the experience of seamless, unrestricted natural walking over a large-scale virtual environment (VE).
