▣ Abstract :
Recently, Augmented Reality (AR), as a new medium, has attracted public attention and increased interest in its possibilities. Meanwhile, major players in IT areas (such as Google, Facebook, Microsoft, SONY, Samsung, etc.) have introduced head-mounted display (HMD) as a new wearable display platform and investigated the possibilities of the HMD-based AR. In this seminar, I first introduce the basic concepts of wearable AR and Augmented Human (AH) for ubiquitous VR. Then, I also explain the importance of context-aware interface and natural interaction for HMD-based applications. Finally I share my vision on the future research directions of AH through its possible applications.
