The Time Machine – an Inclusive Tourist Guide Application Supporting Exploration

Rassmus-Gröhn, Kirsten LU ; Magnusson, Charlotte LU and Szymczak, Delphine LU (2013) In Lecture Notes in Computer Science Haptic and Audio Interaction Design. p.127-136
Abstract
In the present paper we describe an inclusive tourist application, The Time Machine, that allows users to explore an environment or be guided along a trail while experiencing virtual sounds and get information (visual and auditory) at key locations in the environment. We report the application design and preliminary results from evaluations in a city environment. Results indicate that the Time Machine is fun, stimulating and usable for a wide range of users.
