Abstract

The U-CREATE project aims at efficient content creation for new technologies, in particular interactive setups, Mixed Reality experiences and location-based services. A graphical authoring tool is developed to allow one to create elaborated contents in a fast and easy way. The present paper introduces the tool and elaborates on its main components, which allow the user to author an interactive story and also to manage the connected interaction devices.
