This paper describes a novel 3D carousel intended for virtual showcasing. The carousel is based on a 3D ring menu which is rendered on a 3D display. The user interaction with the carousel is achieved by tracking the user's gestures while the behavior of the carousel is modiffed through physically-based pseudo-haptic effects. The pseudo-haptic effect is based on modifying the friction coeffcient taking into account the relevance of the objects displayed in the carousel. In addition, magnetic effect is introduced in order to attract the active item of the carousel. The results from a first user study are globally encouraging and provide insights about the potential of our 3D pseudo-haptic carousel for virtual showcasing.
