Natural Interfaces for Augmented Reality

Jul 6, 2012

<p>Augmented Reality (AR) interfaces involve the seamless overlay of virtual information on the real world, and have been researched since the 1960's. However until recently most AR interfaces required the use of special input devices and we often not intuitive to use. In this talk we describe how new technology has enabled the development of more natural AR interaction. Current interfaces allow the use of natural gesture, speech and body input to interact with AR content in a very intuitive way. Examples will be shown from research being conducted at the HIT Lab NZ and other places, and directions for future research will be presented.
