Abstract: Displays that use an AR browser to augment a printed poster are nowadays commonplace in many cities. Whilst much research exists on the technical issues and interaction techniques related to such AR displays, currently there has been little research on how these applications are actually used. In this paper, we present the first study reporting on usage comfort and spatial aspects when using an AR browsing app on to browse augmented content on a physical poster. Key findings are that the mean distance users preferred to stand from the poster content was 129 cm (SD = 34 cm) and that standing further from the poster enabled a browsing task to be completed more quickly. Based on our findings we make recommendations on the content and spatial location of AR poster installations.
Notes: INTRODUCTION & MOTIVATION Mobile devices, especially smart phones, have become the default platform for augmented reality (AR) browsers. As a result, AR applications are increasingly making their way “into the wild” and appearing in a wide variety use cases from naming landmarks in a city view, or airplanes in the sky, to enriching paper documents with 3D models or further contextual digital information. Today, AR applications are used in a wide variety of domains such as navigation, manufacturing, tourism and entertainment [1, 20]. Recently, PokemonGo has surfaced as a global phenomenon, which has introduced AR to a wide cross
