ARphy: Managing Photo Collections Using Physical Objects in Augmented Reality
HCI Lab - Seoul National University (2020)
ARphy is a tangible interface that extends current ways of organizing photo collections by enabling people to interact with digital photos using physical objects in Augmented Reality. ARphy contextually connects photos with real objects and utilizes physical affordances so that people can add more meanings to their collections and interact with them naturally. We also created an ARphy Interaction Design Toolkit, which can add ARphy-compatible interactions to any object, so that people can register their own things for organizing collections. We developed a prototype using seven everyday objects and evaluated ARphy through a qualitative user study. Our findings indicate that ARphy is intuitive, immersive, and enjoyable and has the potential for selectively managing collections using photos and objects that have personal meanings.
