We demonstrate basic 2D and 3D interactions in both a Virtual Reality (VR) system, called the Personal Space Station, and an Augmented Reality (AR) system, called the Visual Interaction Platform. Since both platforms use identical (optical) tracking hardware and software, and can run identical applications, users can experience the effect of the way the systems present their information to them (as VR or AR). Since the systems use state-of-the-art tracking technology, the users can also experience the opportunities and limitations offered by such technology at first hand. Such hands-on experience is expected to enrich the discussion on the role that VR and AR systems (with optical tracking) could and/or should play within Ambient Intelligence.
