Abstract

This paper proposes a system, created with the goal of simplifying the design and development of interactive experiences to help explore a space. It has four components: XploreDescription, XploreBuilder, urSpace and an infrastructure. The XploreDescription, is a language grammar to describe interactive experiences with interactions based on gestures and user's actions. The XploreBuilder is a visual tool used to design interactive experiences by assembling building blocks. urSpace creates interactive experiences and is built on top of an infrastructure that uses existing video camera and wireless networks to provide means to support interactive experiences using mobile devices. Description files of the space and interactive experience generated by XploreBuilder are parsed by urSpace, that creates the interactive experience application. This application can be immediately accessed using the user's mobile device. Interactive experiences based on interaction with the space like mobile augmented reality games can be created quickly and with little or no experience of programming.
