Museums beyond Meatspace / Visitor Experience with Augmented Reality in a Museum Exhibit Setting

Scott Sayre, Jen Tobias and Diana Marques. Hundreds of millions of people worldwide engage daily in creation, exploration and interaction within thousands of massive multi-user virtual worlds, user-generated worlds in which the presence of museums is pervasive. The overwhelming majority of these museums are created not by professional museum entities but by users not otherwise affiliated with museums. Augmented Reality is a recent subject of curiosity and experimentation from the museum community and considered a tool for museum innovation. It is the promise of an advanced natural interaction between visitors, collection objects and their data, putting action and unique personal experiences at the core.
