Editors’ Note: To celebrate Presence’s 25th year of publication, we have invited selected members of the journal’s original editorial board and authors of several early articles to contribute essays looking back on the field of virtual reality, from its very earliest days to the current time. This essay comes from Ron Azuma who, starting from an article that defined augmented reality (AR) and stands as one of the most influential MIT Press articles of all time, highlights the opportunities…

    2019 IEEE Conference on Virtual Reality and 3D User Interfaces (VR)
  • 2019
TLDR
The research conducted and planned in the context of a PhD thesis is described, which aims at determining a multidimensional model of user performance in spatial user interaction in augmented reality for training.
SIG: Spatiality of Augmented Reality User Interfaces
TLDR
This SIG aims to critically discuss the definition of Spatial Interfaces and outline the common components that build such interfaces in today's world and urge the community to reflect on the path ahead and focus on the potential of what kind of experiences can Sp spatial Interfaces achieve today.
Towards a Smart and Socialised Augmented Reality
TLDR
This paper introduces a nascent project aimed at exploring new avenues to support creativity, socialisation and community through smart interfaces for augment reality through a preliminary framework consisting of 2 orthogonal continua (virtual-real and human-thing) and 2 critical perspective (postphenomenology/posthumanism and cultural interface).
Assessment of Augmented Reality in Manual Wiring Production Process with Use of Mobile AR Glasses
TLDR
The authors recall the research from 2019 about the new method of manual wiring support with the AR glasses and deliberate on conclusions, technology’s imperfections, limitations, and future possible development of the presented solution.
Investigating Different Augmented Reality Approaches in Circuit Assembly: a User Study
TLDR
Participants were significantly faster and made fewer errors while using the AR approaches, and most preferred the multi-device approach.

TLDR
The characteristics of augmented reality systems are described, including a detailed discussion of the tradeoffs between optical and video blending approaches, and current efforts to overcome these problems are summarized.
Indirect augmented reality
TLDR
This paper replaces the live camera view used in video see through AR with a previously captured panoramic image to improve the perceived quality of the tracking while still maintaining a similar overall experience and evaluates this technique on both a performance and experiential basis.
