Augmented Mirrors

Abstract

A recurrent problem in egocentric Augmented Reality (AR) is the misestimation of depth. Providing alternative views from non-egocentric perspectives can convey useful information for applications that require the correct judgment of depth.

Augmented Mirrors enable to reflect changes of real and virtual content of an AR application while providing the perceptual advantages of using mirrors. This concept only requires tracking the user and mirror poses with the accuracy demanded by a specific application. Moreover, it can be used for multiple applications ranging from alignment, exploration, spatial understanding, and selective content visualization using different AR-enabled devices and tracking technologies.
