Augmented Reality Applications and User Interfaces Using Head-Coupled Near-Axis Personal Projectors with Novel Retroreflective Props and Surfaces (bibtex)
by Mark Bolas, David M. Krum
Abstract:
One motivation for the development of augmented reality technology has been the support of more realistic and flexible training simulations. Computer-generated characters and environments – combined with real world elements such as furniture and props to ‘set the stage’ – create the emotional, cognitive, and physical challenges necessary for well-rounded team-based training. This paper presents REFLCT, a mixed reality staging and display system that couples an unusual near-axis personal projector design with novel retroreflective props and surfaces. The system enables viewer-specific imagery to be composited directly into and onto a surrounding environment, without optics positioned in front of the user’s eyes or face. Characterized as a stealth projector, it unobtrusively offers bright images with low power consumption. In addition to training applications, the approach appears to be well-matched with emerging user interface and application domains, such as asymmetric collaborative workspaces and mobile personalized guides.
