Computer Supported Collaborative Design Using Augmented Reality
While doing a usability evaluation of an augmented reality application (FurnitAR), interesting aspects of the application in regards to collaborative design were uncovered. FurnitAR can perhaps make one step in the furniture design process - the creation of a mock-up model in for instance cardboard - more efficient. FurnitAR was proposed as a solution to make the creation of mock-ups more in line with the CAD process. An evaluation of FurnitAR revealed that it could enhance the prototyping process of furniture design and provides new ways to support collaboration during the design process.
