This paper presents our research on the Interaction Techniques Markup Language (InTml). The main purpose of InTml is to support retargeting - finding ways to evolve and fit virtual reality (VR) applications over heterogeneous hardware platforms. Towards this goal, we have developed a hardwareĆ¢-independent, component-based, formal model that describes the execution of VR applications; an XML language for describing complex VR applications; a methodology for InTml-based development, a way to isolate and replace interaction techniques; and a set of tools for development support. This article describes these topics and states future directions of our research.
