Abstract :
We investigated a hybrid personal computer (PC) and augmented reality (AR) setup to bring immersive visualization to existing scientific workflows. We collaborated with particle physicists to understand their analysis needs and designed a prototype that treats the AR content as an extension of the PC. An initial observational study confirmed the benefits of the hybrid setting and validated its feasibility. We also found that the match of dimensionality between input and output devices is not critical for users’ performance, and that the mouse remains an efficient tool for high-accuracy 3D tasks. Both findings suggest that the mouse could be the primary input for the hybrid setting. Finally, to support walking around in AR, we proposed to add a mobile device to the hybrid setting and presented a pressure-augmented tactile 3D navigation technique to improve the accuracy.
