Hybridation of Spatial Augmented Reality and Virtual Reality
Participants: Joan Sol Roo and Martin Hachet
Spatial Augmented Reality (SAR) allows a user, or a group of users, to benefit from digital augmentations embedded directly into the physical world. This enables co-located information and unobstructed interaction. On the other hand, SAR suffers from limitations that are inherently linked to its physical dependency, which is not the case for see-through or immersive displays. In this work, we explore how to facilitate the transition from SAR to VR, and vice versa, integrating both into a unified experience (Figure 5). We developed a set of interaction techniques and obtained first feedback from informal interviews.
