Low-income African American communities face a disproportionate amount of diet-related health problems in the United States. To address this issue, we developed EatWell, a system that allows people to use their cell phones to create voice memories describing how they have tried to eat healthfully in their neighborhoods (<i>e.g.</i>, at local restaurants)(More)
The Historic Oakland Cemetery in downtown Atlanta provides a unique setting for exploring the challenges of location-based mixed-reality experience design. Our objective is to entertain and educate visitors about historically and culturally significant events related to the deceased inhabitants of the cemetery. We worked with the constraints and affordances(More)
The Wizard of Oz prototyping approach, widely used in human-computer interaction research, is particularly useful in exploring user interfaces for pervasive, ubiquitous, or mixed-reality systems that combine complex sensing and intelligent control logic. The vast design space for such nontraditional interfaces provides many possibilities for user(More)
We present a virtual environment application that allows users to access embedded information within an immersive virtual space. Due to the richness and complexity of this environment, efficient and easy-to-use interaction techniques are a crucial requirement. The “Virtual Venue” combines both twoand three-dimensional interaction techniques seamlessly into(More)
This demonstration will highlight the Designer’s Augmented Reality Toolkit (DART), a system that allows users to easily create augmented reality (AR) experiences. Over the past year our research has been focused on the creation of this toolkit that can be used by technologists, designers, and students alike to rapidly prototype AR applications. Current(More)
<italic>Among its many uses, hypertext can serve as a medium for a new kind of flexible, interactive fiction. Storyspace#8482; is a hypertext system we have created for authoring and reading such fiction. Interactive fiction in the computer medium is a continuation of the modern &#8220;tradition&#8221; of experimental literature in print. However, the(More)
In this paper we discuss our work on applying media theory to the creation of narrative augmented reality (AR) experiences. We summarize the concepts of remediation and media forms as they relate to our work, argue for their importance to the development of a new medium such as AR, and present two example AR experiences we have designed using these(More)
<i>One important tool for developing complex interactive applications is "Wizard of Oz "(WOz)simulation.WOz simulation allows design concepts,content and partially completed applications to be tested on users without the need to first create a completely working system.In this paper we discuss the integration of wizard interface tools into a Mixed Reality(More)
