Feature Interfaces

A number of graphical applications are designed with the following features and limitations in mind:
•    Easy navigation of 3-D spaces and natural access to items in the 3-D space utilizing multi-touch surface and emphasizing specific features of the sphere-shaped screen
•   The visible zones for a standing user are taken into account (see figure)
•   The Graphical User Interface is in fact graphical and intuitive with minimum amount of text
•   Multi-touch gestures are integrated into the interface


Virtual Rooms: Bridge

The user can enter the Captain’s Bridge by zooming in on its door. A number of monitors on the bridge show data from the actual navigation systems of the ship. The user can enlarge the images on the monitors by zooming in. However, the most spectacular view is seen when a device is zoomed into as far as possible so that it takes the whole screen.

Restaurant

The products available for selection are presented in a hierarchical way.
Food categories are located on the upper shelf. Clicking on one of categories shows all available products in that category.
Food could be ordered by dragging chosen plates from lower shelf and dropping them onto the “orders” table.
Clicking the bell after the last product is chosen shows the entire order in a popup window asking for a confirmation. When the order is confirmed, it is sent to the Stuart.

Bar

Zooming in on the Bar room provides a general view of the bar.

The Bar is similar to the restaurant. The categories are located on the upper shelf. Clicking on one of categories shows all available bottles in that category on the lower shelf. If a bottle is dragged to the bar table without tilting, the whole bottle is included in the order.

Each tilt is equivalent to a glass, so if a bottle is tilted, a tray with the proper number of glasses (equal to the number of tilts) will appear near the bottle. If a bottle was tilted even once, then the bottle itself is not included in the order.

Clicking the bell after the last product is chosen shows the entire order in a popup window asking for a confirmation. When the order is confirmed, it is sent to the Stuart.

Entertainment

The Entertainment applications allow selecting Video and Music items. The media selection can be started by zooming into a corresponding room such as the cinema or the concert hall.
The process of looking for a video or audio disk is similar to getting a drink from the bar. There are many videos and music disks, which are classified into categories.
Navigation is the same as that used for the whole Virtual Entrance application set: zooming and moving.

There is one specific feature of the entertainment services: it is possible to start a video or an audio not only via the Virtual Entrance, but also using other devices in the rooms via web service interfacing to the entertainment system.
