Icons (left) and menus (right) used in the VADeT system. Fig. 2. Materials (left) and colors (right) used in the VADeT system. has altered design behavior and thinking routine. There were several interesting findings in the experiments. 1. In conventional designs, designers would heavily rely on using scale to get accurate measurements for spatial layouts. In the full scale environment of this system, there were no physical scales available at the time of this experiment, so designers used their own bodies as the representation of scale for design.

Specifically, while the participants were as accurate on 3D PTA as on the 2D PTA and 3D desktop PTA, their errors were qualitatively different. In particular, in 3D PTA, most errors were systematically due to confusion between “right-left” and “back-front” coding in respect to the body indicating that they indeed were relying more on body-centred frame of reference. In contrast, in 2D and 3D desktop non-immersive environments, participants made more “allocentric” errors characterized by over-rotating or under-rotating the scene.

For instance, people create their own special and intended representations to show identifications, which could be the things (avatar) that they subconsciously intend to be but are not feasible in reality. People also present their “real” selves or expected shelters in certain details, which is the critical sense of realism and presence in the virtual artificial world. Such changes of representation would cut through arbitrary social barrier in the virtual space. 10 Conclusions Design representation experiments have shown the subtle changes involved when designing in virtual environments.
