The results of 2010 3D user interfaces (3DUI) contest, which identifies innovative input devices as well as ways to visualize and manipulate information, are presented. The contest included a task of finding some objects in a supermarket and moving them to a table. A supermarket model was developed that was exported to the Virtual Reality Modeling Language (VRML). Two contest categories such as a video competition and a live competition was created during the conference. The results show that pointing-based steering was the most common travel technique while ray casting was the most common selection technique. Adapted 2D menus were employed by the contestants mainly to let users select multiple objects from a group, such as in virtual shopping carts. One of the contesting teams implemented the most complete set of interaction techniques and compared several solutions.
