Making Pretense Visible and Graspable: An augmented reality approach to promote pretend play

Zhen Bai, Alan F. Blackwell, George Coulouris
2012 2012 IEEE International Symposium on Mixed and Augmented Reality (ISMAR)  
We observe that both Augmented Reality (AR) and pretend play involve processing of information that is coupled with real scenes while not necessarily being directly perceived.  ...  As an initial outcome, we present the design and implementation of an AR system that aims to enhance the comprehension and flexibility of object substitution during pretend play.  ...  Third, the visible augmentation helps to avoid potential inter-subjective ambiguity about the intention of pretense, which could assist children with autism to play with normally developed peers and family  ...

Zuzanna Aleksandra Rucinska, UH Research Archive, UH Research Archive
