ExplorViz shows the structure of software in a visual manner using an HMD for display and a kinnect V2 for interaction. Open packages are visualized by flat green boxes which show their internal details, i.e., sub packages, classes, and communication. Green boxes on the top layer represent closed packages hiding their internal details. Classes are visualized as purple boxes and the communication is displayed as orange lines. The width of the line corresponds to the call frequency of the represented methods.
For navigation, hand gestures are used, making a closed fist then moving it allows to pan the visualization or rotate it based on using the right or left hand respectively. To zoom, a metaphor of dragging or pushing a box is used, e.g. open both hand in front of you and push them from your chest will scale down the visualization. Last, the user can jump in place to reset its position.
