In this paper [MacIntyre et al 2004]. we describe The Designer's Augmented Reality Toolkit (DART). DART is built on top of Macromedia Director, a widely used multimedia development environment. We summarize the most significant problems faced by designers working with AR in the real world, and discuss how DART addresses them. Most of DART is implemented in(More)
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)
<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)
Annotation is a key operation for developing understanding of complex data or extended spaces. We have developed a flexible set of annotation tools that can be placed in a variety of applications. These tools offer a full set of capabilities for inserting, iconizing, playing back, and organizing annotations in a virtual space. They also have an intuitive(More)
In this paper, we discuss the integration of 2-D video actors into 3-D augmented-reality (AR) systems. In the context of our research on narrative forms for AR, we have found ourselves needing highly expressive content that is most easily created by human actors. We discuss the feasibility and utility of using video actors in an AR situation and then(More)
Alice's Adventures in New Media is an Augmented Reality (AR) experience based on A Mad Tea Party, a chapter from Lewis Carroll's book Alice's Adventures in Wonderland.
