in the natural environment of the city. With the extensions to “AR Enabling techonogies”

and algorithms that we propose for camera tracking, virtual object interaction and NPR illumination

coupled under a complete real-time framework for character simulation, we aim provide

new dramaturgical notions for Mixed Reality. Such notions could extend further research in MR

and develop it as an exciting edutainment medium.


The authors wish to thank Sebastian Schertenleib for his support with the VHD++ framework

and Marlene Arevalo and Nedjma Cadi for their design work. The work presented has been supported

by the EU IST FP6 programme, in frame of the EU IST ENACTIVE project.
