In the last few years, the advancement of head mounted display technology and optics has opened up many new possibilities for the field of Augmented Reality. However, many commercial and prototype systems often have a single display modality, fixed field of view, or inflexible form factor. In this paper, we introduce Modular Augmented Reality (ModulAR), a(More)
Museums, science centers, zoos and aquaria are faced with educating and entertaining an increasingly diverse visitor population with varying physical and sensory needs. There are very few guidelines to help these facilities develop non-visual exhibit information, especially for dynamic exhibits. In an effort to make such informal learning environments(More)
Reading text safely and easily while mobile has been an issue with see-through displays for many years. For example, in order to effectively use optical see through Head Mounted Displays (HMDs) or Heads Up Display (HUD) systems in constantly changing dynamic environments, variables like lighting conditions, human or vehicular obstructions in a user's path,(More)
A current problem with many video see-through displays is the lack of a wide field of view, which can make them dangerous to use in real world augmented reality applications since peripheral vision is severely limited. Existing wide field of view displays are often bulky, lack stereoscopy, or require complex setups. To solve this problem, we introduce a(More)
Indoor navigation in emergency scenarios poses a challenge to evacuation and emergency support, especially for injured or physically encumbered individuals. Navigation systems must be lightweight, easy to use, and provide robust localization and accurate navigation instructions in adverse conditions. To address this challenge, we combine magnetic location(More)
In recent years, the development of wearable displays has seen a drastic increase. However, there is still a strong resistance to using wearable technology for fear of decreased visibility and attention to one's surroundings. To address this concern, this paper describes a series of experiments that study user tendencies related to viewing and placing text(More)
Human eye gaze has recently been used as an effective input interface for wearable displays. In this paper, we propose a gaze-based interaction framework for optical see-through displays. The proposed system can automatically judge whether a user is engaged with virtual content in the display or focused on the real environment and can determine his or her(More)
