Abstract CRC cards (Classes, Responsibilities, and Collaborators) are amongst the most well known techniques to practice quick object-oriented design prototyping. The design process through CRC cards is essentially an exploratory procedure to incrementally, quickly and easily identify the objects and relationships inherent in a target software system. The use of cards offers a familiar metaphor, facilitating participatory design, where developers collaborate in an argumentation-based process to quickly produce a plausible system design. Existing tools supporting CRC cards emphasize a 2D delivery, with a shift of focus on specification and documentation, rather than on direct manipulation and naturalness of interaction. Overall, such tools hardly outperform the benefits from the physical practicing of CRC cards. As part of this thesis we have developed the /Flying Circus/ design tool offering interactive, direct manipulation of 3D CRC cards. In this tool, cards may be created, positioned, and manipulated in the 3D world, supporting directional labelled links to illustrate collaborators. Facilities like zooming, panning, 3D rotations, smooth navigation, and stereoscopic display are fully provided, essentially delivering an evolving, exploratory and immersive design space. The benefits range from increased control, focus of attention, visual encoding and better exploitation of the human spatial memory.
