Abstract:As Augmented Reality(AR) glasses become increasingly powerful, comfortable and affordable, we foresee a future where they will become common place and will be used in tandem with a mobile phone. In this project, we investigate how AR display can be used to enhance user experience for web browsing on mobile devices. Through our exploration, we identify four main categories of use cases and three design factors. We implement an interactive prototype that allows users to offload different types of content from web pages to AR display. We explore different direct and mid-air interaction techniques that can offload content types effectively. Lastly, we present findings and insights from a 10-participant user study that provides empirical data supporting the practicality of our system, and discuss challenges and guidance for the future. In our study, the participants found the integrated system compelling and greatly enhanced the efficiency and comfort of certain web browsing tasks. More participants preferred the automatic offload of content to the manual mode and rated it higher in terms of comfort, ease of use and efficiency.
