We’ve just finished shooting a video summary illustrating some of the main features available in ProtoAR, our rapid prototyping tool for mobile augmented reality interfaces.

We created ProtoAR specifically for interaction designers. There are two key innovations in ProtoAR: (1) cross-device multi-layer authoring tools for live editing of mobile AR apps on phones; (2) interactive capture tools to generate mobile screens or AR overlays from paper sketches, and 3D models from Play-Doh. These are described in detail in our CHI 2018 paper.

We look forward to presenting the work at CHI 2018 in Montreal this April, and we have some more plans with ProtoAR. So stay tuned! For now, here is a preview of what one can do with ProtoAR:
