Design of an Annotation System for taking notes in Virtual Reality

The industry uses immersive virtual environments for testing engineering solutions. Annotation systems allow capturing the insights that arise during those virtual reality sessions. However, those annotations remain in the virtual environment. Users are required to return to virtual reality to access it.

We propose a new annotation system for VR. The design of this system contains two important aspects. First, the digital representation of the annotations enables to access the annotation in both virtual and physical world. Secondly, the interaction technique for taking notes in VR is designed to enhance the feeling of bringing the annotations from the physical world to the virtual and vice versa. We also propose the first implementation of this design.
