Abstract or description

In recent years the applications of Mixed Reality (MR) processing has
become highly apparent in academia and the manufacturing industry with the
release of innovative technologies such as the Microsoft HoloLens. However,
crucial design issues with the HoloLens’ restricted Field Of View (FOV) to a
narrow window of 34 degrees inhibited the user's natural peripheral vision (Kress
& Cummings, 2017). This visual limitation results in a loss of pre-set functions
and projected visualisations in the AR application window. This paper presents
an innovative methodology in designing a spatial User Interface (UI), to
minimise the adverse effects associated with the HoloLens’ narrow FOV. The
spatial UI is a crucial element towards developing a museum-based MR system,
which was evaluated by nine experts in Human-Computer interaction (HCI),
visual communication and museum studies. Results of this study indicate a
positive user reaction towards the accessibility of the spatial UI system and
enhancing the user experience. This approach can help current and future
HoloLens developers to extend their application functions without visual
restrictions or missing content.
