The Behavioral Framework for immersive Technologies (BehaveFiT) is a guide for creating immersive interventions. It presents four main factors that can be manipulated in VR environments to promote attitudinal and behavioral change (Wienrich, et al., 2020). One of these manipulable factors are the virtual objects and their appearance, interactivity, etc. Object integration in VR is almost limitless and can be beautifully integrated into foreign language learning. Yang and Liao enabled, in an AR application, students to translate, rotate, scale, and change virtual objects in 3D using intuitive hand gestures. This allowed cultural content to be easily and quickly visualized and thus paraphrased (Yang, and Liao, 2014). However, if a large number of objects are to be presented at the same time, e.g. in a suitcase, some objects lie automatically on top and fall more into the field of vision.

In this project we want to test different ways of presenting and interacting with objects.
