Abstract: When people first experience Virtual Reality they are bound to come away with some misconceptions as to the potential and usefulness of the technology due to the hype which has recently surrounded it. Thus, there is a need for a novice environment in which first-time (novice) users can get acquainted with the basic technology and its potential by means of a demonstrative application. The goals of such an environment are to give a 'taste' of the technology and a hint of how valuable it will be when it matures. This paper describes a novice environment called the Novice Design Environment, in which users can perform basic interior decoration design. A design metaphor called the Heaven and Earth is used in order to customize the design. This environment has been tested with a large of novice users. An evaluation of tools for supporting novice interaction and 'rules of thumb' for building virtual realities for novices are presented.
