This paper describes an affordable Virtual Reality system designed and developed by a group of researchers at the Polytechnic University of Catalunya (UPC). The system allows direct selection and manipulation of virtual 3D objects. The interaction is based on stereoscopic images projected over the user’s working space and on devices tracking the user’s natural movements. The system includes a screen being adjustable both in orientation and height, sensors tracking the head and hand movements, and a tactile device for the forefinger providing touch sense. A prototype of the system is currently exhibited at the Virtual Reality Center of Barcelona and it is being used in different application fields like architecture, medicine and industrial design.
