a first example of Smart Avatars
This project focuses on a new interaction system named Smart Avatars, which is based on a mixed reality environment containing virtual avatars as a medium for the interaction between the user and the smart objects of the environment. As a prototype, we introduce Flexo. With Flexo we investigate the virtues and obstacles that occur when we use an augmented reality (AR) avatar to interact with a simple smart object.
