We propose an AR exhibition system inducing user behavior with visual incompatibility. The proposed method is to emphasize the edge of the image on the tablet screen and move its emphasized edge to a target direction. In addition, we implemented the AR exhibition system with the proposed induction method to validate the effectiveness of it, and conducted a demonstration experiment as an exhibition at a museum. Through our demonstration experiment, we confirmed that the proposed method induced participants to start looking around. The result of questionnaire suggested that our proposed method did not disturb audience’s appreciation, and our proposed method would be applicable to the AR exhibition system. However, the method could not induce the participants to move to the target direction. In addition, the induction did not work while the participants were looking around.
