Conference paper


The new features offered by top-of-the-range mobile devices can be exploited to support Face-to-Face collaboration, providing collaborative interfaces that go “beyond being there” perception. In particular, Augmented Reality interfaces appear to be a natural medium for Computer Supported Collaborative Work. In this paper, we present an Augmented Reality system, named Augmented Reality Mind Scanner System (ARMS), aiming at supporting the speaker of a meeting in receiving feedback from the audience concerning their agreement with and the clarity of the presentation. The ARMS system is a phase of deeper ongoing research on the possibilities of applying Augmented Reality technology on mobile devices, and is anticipating future technological developments that will bring more powerful devices on current customer markets.
