CaminAR: Supporting Walk-and-talk Experiences for Remote Dyads using Augmented Reality on Smart Glasses

by   Victor Chu, et al.

In this paper, we propose CaminAR, an augmented reality (AR) system for remote social walking among dyads. CaminAR enables two people who are physically away from one another to synchronously see and hear each other while going on a walk. The system shows a partner's avatar superimposed onto the physical world using smart glasses while walking and talking. Using a combination of visual and auditory augments, CaminAR simulates the experience of co-located walking when dyads are apart.
