AROS (Augmented Reality for Open Space)


Presentation Title:

  • AROS (Augmented Reality for Open Space)




  • Augmented Reality in Open Spaces (AROS) explores culture and creative technologies in the open spaces of Albuquerque by working with local youth to create a mural that links to content on the web via Argon, an Augmented Reality browser developed at Georgia Tech. Participants use Culturally Situated Design Tools (CSDTs) developed at RPI to learn standards-based math and computing as they simulate designs that are combined to produce an outdoor mural. The experience of interacting with the mural through touchscreen, camera-enabled mobile devices blends virtual and physical spaces and results in a greater appreciation for STEM learning, culture and art.
