Recently several researchers have developed augmented reality books which involve overlaying virtual content onto the pages of a real book. In this paper, we extend this general concept by adding virtual visual and auditory enhancements to an already published book. Together with the author and professionals in education we have explored various alternatives of combining virtual and real content, new dedicated interactions techniques, and visual effects to enhance immersion. In this paper we report on the design and development of a new type of ’mixed reality book’. We also summarize user feedback collected during different user trials and demonstrations of the prototype.

Freeze view touch and finger gesture based interaction methods for handheld augmented reality interfaces Bai, H.; Lee, G.A.; Billinghurst, Mark (University of Canterbury. Human Interface Technology Laboratory, 2012)Interaction techniques for handheld mobile Augmented Reality (AR) often focus on device-centric methods based around touch input. However, users may not be able to easily interact with virtual objects in mobile AR scenes ...
Lee, G.A.; Bai, H.; Billinghurst, Mark (University of Canterbury. Human Interface Technology Laboratory, 2012)Tangible Augmented Reality (AR) interfaces use physical objects as a medium for interacting with virtual objects. In many cases, they track physical objects using computer vision techniques to attach corresponding virtual ...
