2 Papers at CHI 2019

We are happy to announce that we have two papers accepted at CHI 2019 featuring our work on 360proto, a new AR/VR physical-digital prototyping tool which allows designers to make both AR and VR prototypes from paper and bring them to live on common AR/VR devices, and a critical reflection piece on the question of What is Mixed Reality?, written up as a paper that is part scientific literature review, part analysis of state of the art in industry, and part interviews with leading experts on AR/VR in both academia and industry.

  1. M. Nebeling, K. Madier: 360proto: Making Interactive Virtual Reality & Augmented Reality Prototypes from Paper
  2. M. Speicher, B.D. Hall, M. Nebeling: What is Mixed Reality? Best Paper Honorable Mention

We also announced earlier that we will offer an AR/VR prototyping course at CHI this year! The idea to teach this course really grew out of our success teaching AR/VR interaction design to a diverse student body in Fall 2018. We have since started teaching a more advanced and technical version this semester.

The CHI 2019 course will be an exciting opportunity for new and old AR/VR researchers, designers, and students to come together and learn about our rapid prototyping techniques in a hands-on manner. Should be fun!

See you at CHI 2019 in Glasgow, Scotland, UK this year!
