This paper proposes a framework to support interaction with virtual objects integrated in a real life scenario. In the proposed interaction concept, the user can reshape or re-design a real space using virtual objects using several pictures of the desired space. The images are analyzed for known features such as surfaces, floor or room orientation. Using these elements, it is possible to devise an augmented reality system where the user can add virtual objects to the scenario that react to its content. These are magnetic objects because they attach itself to elements on the scene such as floor or walls. This approach liberates the user from moving objects in three-dimensional space. Instead they just push around objects in a more natural interface. The paper studies the impact of adding these magnetism effects in the interaction with an augmented reality-editing interface.
