Abstract

Augmented Reality (AR) is a technology to blend the digital computer such as audio, text, animation, 3D models seamlessly to the real-world environment. This technology is going to change the way how people imagine, see and learn in the future. This paper discussed the implementation and development of interactive objects for AR by integrating Oculus Rift, Leap Motion Controller (LMC) and camera. In this project, a video-displayed AR device is created to work together with a special designed AR book. A LMC is essential as a peripheral input device for the user to interact with the system. The application of LMC further enhances the interactivity with different well-designed hand gestures such as thumb up, down and pinching. The proposed design will enhance the user experience for interacting, engaging and responding to the information.
