AR Karaoke: Acting in Your Favorite Scenes

Maribeth Gandy, Blair MacIntyre, Peter Presti, Steven Dow, Jay David Bolter, Brandon Yarbrough, and Nigel O’Rear. “AR Karaoke: Acting in Your Favorite Scenes” In The Fourth International Symposium on Mixed and Augmented Reality (ISMAR 2005), October 6-8, 2005, Vienna, Austria.


In this paper we present a concept for augmented reality entertainment, called AR Karaoke, where users perform their favorite dramatic scenes with virtual actors. AR Karaoke is the acting equivalent of traditional karaoke, where the goal is to facilitate an acting experience for the user that is entertaining for both the user and audience. The main challenge in creating an AR Karaoke prototype is to develop an easy to learn user interface that helps the performer understand the timing, body movement, and dialog for their character. Several prototype implementations were created to evaluate various user interfaces and design approaches for different genres of dramatic performance. The process of implementing and testing these prototypes revealed guidelines that are relevant the design of mixed reality applications in the domains of gaming, performance, and entertainment.
