Evaluation of Multiple Functions Interactive Paper Interface for AR Based Application
A major challenge when dealing with Augmented Reality (AR) based applications interface is to concentrate and visualize the contents (data, information, analysis and virtual 3D objects). Present AR based application uses marker based interactions which has suffered from the limitations on focusing on the contents. The literatures have not addressed this problem clearly although many applications have been developed and tested for their usefulness. This paper presents a preliminary evaluation of an engineering application that exploits emergent interactive paper with multiple functions. In this new design users can touch the symbols on the paper in a user friendly and natural way to interact thus provides more room for visualizing and focusing on the contents. A heuristic based evaluation was performed with students and HCI experts to test its effectiveness and the results are presented.
