Present head-mounted displays (HMDs) for Augmented Reality (AR) devices have narrow fields-of-view (FOV). The narrow FOV further decreases the already limited human visual range and worsens the problem of objects going out of view. Therefore, we explore the utility of augmenting head-mounted AR devices with MonoculAR, a peripheral light display comprised of twelve radially positioned light cues, to point towards out-of-view objects. In this work, we present two implementations of MonoculAR: (1… Expand
AAR: Augmenting a Wearable Augmented Reality Display with an Actuated Head-Mounted Projector
TLDR
A system is constructed to combine a head-mounted actuated pico projector with a Hololens AR headset to introduce Augmented Augmented Reality (AAR) by combining a wearable AR display with a wearable spatial augmented reality projector. Expand
OmniView: An Exploratory Study of 360 Degree Vision using Dynamic Distortion based on Direction of Interest
TLDR
OmniView, an exploratory study to determine an optimized 360 FOV vision using dynamic distortion methods for reducing distortion and enlarging the area of the direction of interest, is introduced. Expand
Multiplex Vision: Understanding Information Transfer and F-Formation With Extended 2-Way FOV
TLDR
This work introduces novel conversational paradigms that effects conventional F-formation by introducing the concept of multi-directional conversation in Multiplex Vision, a head-mounted device capable of providing a 360° field-of-view (FOV) and facilitating multi-user interaction multi- directional, thereby providing novel methods on how people can interact with each other.

Visualizing out-of-view objects in head-mounted augmented reality
TLDR
This work adapted and tested well-known 2D off-screen object visualization techniques (Arrow, Halo, Wedge) for head-mounted AR and found that Halo resulted in the lowest error for direction estimation while Wedge was subjectively perceived as best. Expand
EyeSee360: designing a visualization technique for out-of-view objects in head-mounted augmented reality
TLDR
This work designed a lo-fi prototype of the EyeSee360 system, and based on user feedback, subsequently implemented it, and evaluated the technique against well-known 2D off-screen object visualization techniques adapted for head-mounted Augmented Reality, and found that Eye see360 results in lowest error for direction estimation of out-of-view objects.

Augmenting the Field-of-View of Head-Mounted Displays with Sparse Peripheral Displays
TLDR
The findings show that sparse peripheral displays are useful in conveying peripheral information and improving situational awareness, are generally preferred, and can help reduce motion sickness in nausea-susceptible people. Expand
Fisheye vision: peripheral spatial compression for improved field of view in head mounted displays
TLDR
This work introduces a prototype that utilizes fisheye lenses to expand a user's peripheral vision inside a video see-through head mounted display, and provides an undistorted central field of view, so that natural stereoscopy and depth judgment can occur. Expand
Expanding the Field-of-View of Head-Mounted Displays with Peripheral Blurred Images
TLDR
A method that expands the field-of-view by using two kinds of lenses with different levels of magnification, which doesn't need complicated optics, and is advantageous in terms of device cost and weight, because only two additional Fresnel lenses are necessary. Expand
Wedge: clutter-free visualization of off-screen locations
TLDR
Wedge is presented, a visualization technique that conveys direction and distance, yet avoids overlap and clutter, and can be applied to numbers and configurations of targets that would lead to clutter if visualized using halos. Expand
Halo: a technique for visualizing off-screen objects
TLDR
A user study comparing Halo with an arrow-based visualization technique with respect to four types of map-based route planning tasks finds that when using the Halo interface, users completed tasks 16-33% faster, while there were no significant differences in error rate for three out of four tasks.

Visualizing locations of off-screen objects on mobile devices: a comparative evaluation of three approaches
TLDR
This study presents a user study comparing the Halo [2] approach with two other techniques based on arrows, and investigates the effectiveness of the three techniques with respect to the number of off-screen objects. Expand
Smart glasses with a peripheral vision display
TLDR
A design for smart glasses with a peripheral vision display shows that users are able to perceive information from the device, and explores different animation patterns. Expand
Smart glasses with a peripheral vision display
TLDR
An initial peripheral vision glasses prototype that can display patterns in the peripheral vision of the user and modify walking speed of users (depending on the animations people tend to speed up or slow down) is presented. Expand
