Body LayARs: A Toolkit for Body-Based Augmented Reality

Research output: Contribution to conferencePaperResearchpeer-review


Technological advances are enabling a new class of augmented reality (AR) applications that use bodies as substrates for input and output. In contrast to sensing and augmenting objects, body-based AR applications track people around the user and layer information on them. However, prototyping such applications is complex, time-consuming, and cumbersome, due to a lack of easily accessible tooling and infrastructure. We present Body LayARs, a toolkit for fast development of body-based AR prototypes. Instead of directly programming for a device, Body LayARs provides an extensible graphical programming environment with a device-independent runtime abstraction. We focus on face-based experiences for headset AR, and show how Body LayARs makes a range of body-based AR applications fast and easy to prototype.
