Abstract: Virtual environments are often explored standing up. The purpose of this work is to understand if standing exploration has an advantage over seated exploration. Thus, we present an experiment that directly compares subjects’ spatial awareness when locomoting with a joystick when they are physically standing up versus sitting down. In both conditions, virtual rotations matched the physical rotations of the subject and the joystick was only used for translations through the virtual environment. In the seated condition, users sat in an armless swivel office chair. Our results indicated that there was no difference between the two conditions, sitting and standing. However, this result is interesting and might compel more virtual environment developers to encourage their users to sit in a comfortable swivel chair. As an additional finding to our study, we find a significant difference between the performance of males versus females and gamers versus non–gamers.
