CurSAR: Interacting with Spatial Augmented Reality with 2D Input Devices

Participants : Renaud Gervais, Jérémy Frey, Martin Hachet.

Spatial Augmented Reality (SAR) opens interesting perspectives for new generations of mixed reality applications. Compared to traditional HCI contexts, there is little work that studies user performance in SAR. We did an experiment that compared pointing in SAR versus pointing in front of a screen using standard pointing devices (mouse and tablet). The results showed that the users tend to interact in SAR in a way that is similar to the screen condition, without a big loss of performance.
