The Burn


In this research, the current mobile augmented reality (AR) technologies will be surveyed and investigated to develop a prototype of a hybrid mobile augmented reality system for the locationignited storytelling. Seamful design strategy will be utilized to compensate the limitations of different AR technologies (in particular, different sensors). The developed prototype system will track the user’s position, pose, and orientation and overlay 3D virtual elements onto the point of interest (POI) of the real-world environment. It will also trigger to download a video clip that matches the POI from the database on the server and play it, which enables the user to experience a rich storytelling. A nonplayer character (Familiar) will be also developed to guide the user to POIs.
