Abstract

In this paper, we present a visualization method of virtual characters to provide augmented reality (AR) experiences for a user wearing an optical see-through head-mounted display (HMD). First of all, we execute plane detection to find position of a user’s real desk. Second, we perform position update of virtual characters to connect real-time location information for reflecting the height of miniature objects on the desk. Finally, we visualize virtual characters that is involved in environmental properties with the optical based see-through HMD. Our method can be applied to AR contents with respect to contexts of environmental information surrounding the user such as miniature elements.
