Abstract. To develop human interface for three-dimensional modeling, it is necessary to construct a virtual space, where we can manipulate object models directly just like in real space. We have proposed a new interface device SPIDAR (SPace Interface Device for Artificial Reality) for this virtual space. In this paper, we explain a measuring method of finger position in virtual work space using SPIDAR.
