Abstract

We present the design and prototype of a memory orb, a cylindrical device inspired from an artifact depicted in the science fiction movie Blade Runner 2049. The memory orb is a handheld input device, which allows users to control and manipulate three-dimensional, virtual content by combining pushing, pulling and rotating motor actions, facilitating muscle memory and eyes-free interaction. Our prototype integrates a large number of electronic components while maintaining a small form factor to allow ease of control and simple handling. The described implementation of this prototype aims to showcase the application potential of this cylindrical device in mixed, or virtual reality systems.
