Exploring interactivity and augmented reality in theater: A case study of Half Real

Michael R. Marner, Sam Haren, Matthew Gardiner, Bruce H. Thomas
2012 2012 IEEE International Symposium on Mixed and Augmented Reality - Arts, Media, and Humanities (ISMAR-AMH)  
Half Real is based on a murder investigation, where the live audience votes on how the investigation proceeds.
