Augmented Mirrors

Mirrors are physical displays that show our real world in reflection. While physical mirrors simply show what is in the real world scene, with help of digital technology, we can also alter the reality reflected in the mirror. The Augmented Mirrors project aims at exploring visualisation and interaction techniques for exploiting mirrors as Augmented Reality (AR) displays. The project especially focuses on using user interface agents for guiding user interaction with Augmented Mirrors.

    This research investigates using user interface (UI) agents for guiding gesture based interaction with Augmented Virtual Mirrors. Compared to prior work in gesture interaction, where graphical symbols are used for guiding user interaction, we propose using UI agents. We explore two approaches for using UI agents: 1) using a UI agent as a delayed cursor and 2) using a UI agent as an interactive button. We conducted two user studies to evaluate the proposed designs. The results from the user studies show that UI agents are effective for guiding user interactions in a similar way as a traditional graphical user interface providing visual cues, while they are useful in emotionally engaging with users.
