Sense-Enabled Mixed Reality Museum ExhibitionsMount, Sarah; Liarokapis, F.; Newman, Robert; Goldsmith, D.J.; Macan, L.; Malone, G.; Shuttleworth, J.K. (Aire-la-Ville, Switzerland: Eurographics Association, 2007)Explores new vistas in presenting cultural and heritage material to the general public by creating a prototype interface to exhibits using mixed reality (where augmented and virtual reality are used together). A prototype system, called SoundScape, is presented, where ambient sound is sensed by a wireless sensor network and displayed on a laptop as an animation within a 3D model of the environment. This provides a testbed on which to experiment with multi-modal heritage guides.
