Immersive virtual environments allow users to control their virtual viewpoint by moving the tracked head or by walking through the real world. Usually, movements in the real world are mapped one-to-one to virtual camera motions. With redirection techniques, gains are applied to user movements when the virtual camera is manipulated. Since male and female persons use different strategies for spatial cognition and navigation, it sounds reasonable that these gender differences also occur for redirection techniques. In this paper we examine the impact of gender on tasks where male and female subjects have to discriminate between virtual and real stimuli. 7 male and 6 female subjects have been tested in three different experiments: discrimination between virtual and physical rotation, discrimination between virtual and physical translation and discrimination of walking direction.
