Computers XXIII Celebrating People and Technology
1 - 5 September 2009
This undergraduate student paper explores usage of mixed reality techniques as support tools for conceptual design. A proof-of-concept was developed to illustrate this principle. Using this as an example, a small group of designers was interviewed to determine their views on the use of this technology. These interviews are the main contribution of this paper. Several interesting applications were determined, suggesting possible usage in a wide range of domains. Paperbased sketching, mixed reality and sketch augmentation techniques complement each other, and the combination results in a highly intuitive interface.
