Abstract: This paper describes a full-body pointing interface based on the mimicking of the use of binoculars, the Virtual Binocular Interface. This interface is a component of the interactive installation “Viaggiatori di Sguardo”, located at Palazzo Ducale, Genova, Italy, and visited by more than 5,000 visitors so far. This paper focuses on the evaluation of such an interface.
