    Augmented Reflection of Reality


Entry Number: 03


    To support augmented reality (AR), various display systems have been proposed to mix the real and virtual worlds together. The existing display technologies can be mainly categorized into two classes: video-based mixing and optical combination [Azuma et al. 2001; Bimber and Raskar 2005]. Both technologies have their own advantages and disadvantages. This work falls into the second category. Traditional AR applications focus on interacting with the augmented physical environment surrounding a user. Therefore, although half-silvered mirrors are sometimes used, they mainly serve as see-through displays (i.e., the real world is behind the mirrors).
