Bracelet

The Bracelet is a contextual menu located on the hand of the user. It can be used to launch commands and do actions in a faster and more convenient way.

General description#

It is composed by three elements:

The Indicator Board with the circular indicators which is always displayed. This board is minimized when the user doesn't look at it. Indicators allow the user to gather information about the current VR session. For example, the number of connected users, the current navigation mode, the current command in use...

How to use it#

The bracelet can be used at any moment during the VR session.

It has two opening and closing modes:

Clicking ModeLaser clickClick on the Exit Button
Proximity ModeLaser click or close handsClick on the Exit Button or away hands

The panel opened by default is the Home panel but the user can click on an indicator to open the corresponding panel.

The command indicator is clickable only when the current command in use has specific options usable with the bracelet.

When the bracelet is opened, a panel is displayed on the main board and the user can click on the buttons and controls of this panel to do actions and launch commands.

The Lock button can be used to lock the bracelet opened in the Proximity mode.

The Exit button can be used to close the bracelet.

The Extend button can be used to switch in the extended mode. The extended mode presents all the panels of the current collection (either the general panels, either the command panels) at the same time in front of the user. With this mode, the user can have a global view of all the options available with the current command.

By default, the Bracelet is attached to the left hand but the side can be changed.

By default, the Bracelet is enabled but is can be disabled by using the "Toggle Bracelet Visibility" command.
