Valkov, Dimitar, Flagge, Steffen.  2017.  Smooth Immersion: The Benefits of Making the Transition to Virtual Environments a Continuous Process. Proceedings of the 5th Symposium on Spatial User Interaction. :12–19.
In this paper we discuss the benefits and the limitations, as well as different implementation options for smooth immersion into a HMD-based IVE. We evaluated our concept in a preliminary user study, in which we have tested users' awareness, reality judgment and experience in the IVE, when using different transition techniques to enter it. Our results show that a smooth transition to the IVE improves the awareness of the user and may increase the perceived interactivity of the system.
