Tool Time – Interaction in AR

Busy days. So, today just a short one on interaction.

I’m always fond of new mixed reality, VR and AR interaction metaphors or devices to make the human and the machine work together easily. A mouse and a keyboard is just not the right input for AR scenarios. Last time I posted on this, was regarding marker interaction to manipulate the virtual objects. Now we have a video from diginfo showing a ToolDevice from Ritsumeikan University. Nothing too scary to see here, but I like the research in this field. It’s completely intuitive with a grasp and cut/sew metaphor and if you replicate actual tools from the real (tool) world, you can have a perfect training scenario (for engineers, doctors or for your next BBQ). :-) Enjoy!
