Human Factors in Augmented Reality Environments

In this book Yolande Kolstee wrote chapter 11: “Interactive AR Installation: Lessons Learned in the Field of Art, Design and Cultural Heritage.” Advances in hardware and networking have made possible a wide use of augmented reality (AR) technologies. However, simply putting those hardware and technologies together does not make a ‘good’ system for end users to use. New design principles and evaluation methods specific to this emerging area are urgently needed to keep up with the advance in technologies.

1st Pop-Up Gallery: Graphic Design

The AR Lab and the research department Innovative Visualisation Techniques of the Royal Academy of Art in The Hague will organise a series of Pop-Up Galleries and lectures together with the lecture programme Studium Generale, that investigate how Augmented Reality can be used by artists. The first Pop-Up Gallery will take place on Thursday 15 November 2012 and opens at 17:00 hrs in the rooms around the Auditorium of the Academy. Students of the Graphic Design Department will show their work and graphic designer Niels Schräder and AR-artist Sander Veenhof will give lectures.
