Modern day technologies including wearable devices such as smart glasses have changed the way people interact with their surroundings. Such developments have resulted in the increased popularity of Augmented Reality (AR) applications to project context-aware information on objects or users’ immediate surroundings. In order to enhance the overall tourism experience, a number of recent works have highlighted the opportunities for using outdoor AR or navigation-based AR systems. Due to the… 
Enhancing cultural heritage outdoor experience with augmented-reality smart glasses
An augmented reality smart glasses (ARSG)-based mobile guide with location and orientation-based functionalities that provided visitors with context-aware information regarding the points of interest (POIs) in their field of view (FOV) was developed and compared with a more conventional smartphone-based guide.
Affectual Dramaturgy for Augmented Reality Immersive Heritage Performance
This paper introduces the concept of Affectual Dramaturgy as a lens for creating digitally mediated immersive performances in the context of cultural heritage. In doing so we bring together two


An acceptance model for smart glasses based tourism augmented reality
Recent mobile technologies have revolutionized the way people experience their environment. Although, there is only limited research on users’ acceptance of AR in the cultural tourism context,
User-centred design of smartphone augmented reality in urban tourism context.
The results indicate that information acquisition through AR browsers is more effective and efficient if at least one element within the AR annotation matches the perceived visual characteristics or inferred non-visual attributes of target physical objects.
Empirical Evaluation of Smartphone Augmented Reality Browsers in an Urban Tourism Destination Context
Findings are reported from an empirical mobile study investigating how tourists acquire knowledge about an unfamiliar urban environment through AR browsers, and a framework is developed that shifts the perspective towards a more thorough understanding of the overall design space for such interfaces.
Mapping requirements for the wearable smart glasses augmented reality museum application
The present paper provides a first foundation for the implementation of wearable smart glasses AR applications in the museum and art gallery context and reveals that wearable AR is in its infancy and that technical and design issues have to be overcome for a full adoption.
Enhancing art gallery visitors’ learning experience using wearable augmented reality: generic learning outcomes perspective
It is revealed that the wearable augmented reality application helps visitors to see connections between paintings and personalize their learning experience, however, there are some drawbacks such as lack of visitor–visitor engagement and the social acceptability.
Identifying Tourist Requirements for Mobile AR Tourism Applications in Urban Heritage Tourism
While research for the employment of information and communication technology in urban tourism settings has been conducted for many years, studies to apply Augmented Reality (AR) to enhance the
A Theoretical Model of Augmented Reality Acceptance
Recent tourism research increasingly explored the opportunities of using Augmented Reality (AR) in order to boost tourism and increase the value for tourists while travelling within a destination.
Demystifying the design of mobile augmented reality applications
Results suggest that the proposed principles contribute to ensuring high usability and performance of the MAR application as well as evoking positive feelings during user and system interactions.
