Abstract:


This paper introduces a flexible and powerful software framework
based on an off the shelf game engine which is used to develop
distributed and collaborative virtual and augmented reality
applications. We describe ARTiFICe┬┤s flexible design and
implementation and demonstrate its use in research and teaching
where 97 students in 2 lab courses developed AR applications
with it. Applications are presented on mobile, desktop and
immersive systems using low cost 6-DOF input devices
(Microsoft Kinect, Razer Hydra, SpaceNavigator), that we
integrated into our framework.
