Touching the Past: Developing and Evaluating Heritage Prototype for Visualizing and Interpreting Historical Artefacts Through Tangible Augmented Reality

Team: Suzanne Kobeisse, Lars Erik Holmquist, Andrew Richardson

Timeframe: 2019-2022

This research project explores the use of Tangible User Interfaces and Augmented Reality within the Cultural Heritage domain. As a practice-led research, this research project aims to design, develop and evaluate tangible user interfaces combined with augmented reality to provide cultural heritage professionals and archaeology experts with an accessible and intuitive tangible augmented reality interface for the visualization, analysis and interpretations of historical artefacts. This research is interdisciplinary in nature combining the fields of design, HCI and heritage; and the newly explored interaction methods will suggest new possibilities for the future of Tangible User Interfaces and Augmented Reality research in general and cultural heritage in particular.
