Abstract

We discuss how an augmented-reality platform can be used as a transparent interface to a windows environment. The resulting Visual Interaction Enriched Windows (VIEWs) intend to realize an evolutionary rather than a revolutionary transition from the classical desktop environment to an augmented-reality (AR) environment. Therefore, in VIEWs, windows applications can still be controlled by standard means, i.e., by using mouse and keyboard. In this way, acquired user skills with existing windows applications can still be exploited. The additional interaction styles that are offered by the AR platform, including two-handed interaction, pen input with in-place visual feedback, and transparency, may however be used to improve specific interactions, such as sketching and handwriting, that are more difficult to perform on a classical desktop. The user is free at all times to choose the interaction style that best suits his/her needs when performing specific operations. The VIEWs concept has been implemented as part of an existing AR tool for designers.
