We explore Redirected Jumping, a novel redirection technique which enables us to purposefully manipulate the mapping of the user’s physical jumping movements (e.g. distance and direction) to movements in the virtual space, allowing richer and more active physical VR experiences within a limited tracking area. To demonstrate the possibilities provided by Redirected Jumping, we implemented jumping redirection methods for three basic jumping actions (i.e., horizontal, vertical, and rotational jumps) using common VR devices. We conducted three user studies to investigate the effective manipulation ranges, and the results revealed that our methods can manipulate a user’s jumping movements without them noticing, similar to redirected walking.
