Abstract

This paper presents an Augmented Interactive Reality book (AIR) application, aimed to enhance the reading experience of adult-learners by incorporating Augmented Reality (AR) technology to improve the interaction of normal books. Various features and characteristics of Augmented Reality (AR) were applied to the chosen book, "My Vision" written by H.H. Sheikh Mohammed Bin Rashid Al Maktoum, Vice-President and Prime Minister of the UAE and Ruler of Dubai. The project is a joint-collaboration between Etisalat British Telecommunication Innovation Center (EBTIC) and Khalifa University, as part of the iCampus project on "Smart Learning-Edutainment". The project has received a number of positive feedbacks from the field study conducted with the general public, and has also been presented to H.H. Sheikh Mohammed Bin Rashid Al Maktoum - Ruler of Dubai, H.H. Sheikh Saif Bin Zayed Al Nahyan - Deputy Prime Minister and Minister of Interior, and several others.
