Using Virtual Reality
This is an old video (from 2006!) showing the basic user interface of Vrui in a CAVE, in this case the UC Davis KeckCAVES CAVE. I uploaded it just now because I needed to link it from my shiny new blog, http://doc-ok.org .

The video tries to show what a real immersive 3D display system looks like to a user. It's shot with a hand-held and tracked regular video camera, and there is no post-processing at all (besides cutting). Everything seen in the video showed up exactly like that in the CAVE.

I should mention that the interactions appear more awkward than they normally are, because in order to shoot this video, the CAVE had to be set up to render to the video camera, not to the user in it. Normally, it's the other way around, and then interactions are completely natural and intuitive. But then there's no way to film that, so catch 22. You'll just have to trust me on that one.
