Application for the realisation of a augmented reality gallery

The objective of the scenario application is to create an intuitively usable experience for exploring digitised paintings on a technical exhibit canvas using a new interaction paradigm called pointing gesture tracking. The interactive exhibit scenario achieves this experience by matching the customary association of artworks in a museum such as the presentation of paintings on a canvas with innovative human-computer-interaction methods.

The combination of intuitive interaction techniques and the presentation of multimedia content like digitised paintings on a projection screen is used to generate a novel experience during an exhibition visit. Interacting with virtual exhibits directly leads to an increase in the level of interest of the user and thus the impact on the quality of education through hands-on experiences. The direct interaction with art pieces leads to a deeper involvement with and understanding of the artwork itself, which is a novel experience since the manipulation of original paintings is obviously prohibited.
