The virtual house of medusa: Guiding museum visitors through a co-located mixed reality installation

Research output: Chapter in Book/Report/Conference proceedingsConference contributionpeer-review

Abstract

In our submission we introduce a novel approach to guide Virtual Reality (VR) players and spectators via a Mixed Reality (MR) guidance tool trough a museum installation called the Virtual House of Medusa. The installation features an overview display, a VR headset for the player and a MR guidance tool (tablet with a VR-tracker) for the museum guide. This setup enables museum guides to support the VR player and to present the VR installation to a large audience. Our work deals with the issue that existing VR installations for museums are mainly designed as a single user VR experience and without any forms of spectators and player guidance. We argue that the interaction between the VR museum guide, the VR player, and the spectators has the potential to create a unique experience and to facilitate the feeling of being together in the VR world.
