The Tinmith system is designed to support research into outdoor augmented reality. We have developed new easy to use user interface techniques to be used in 3D environments where keyboards and mice cannot be used. Using these user interfaces, we have developed complex applications which allow users to interact with their environment, and enter new information into the system about the world.

Tinmith has been developed as a core part of Wayne Piekarski’s PhD thesis, supervised by Dr Bruce Thomas, at the Wearable Computer Lab.

The Tinmith system is built up using a number of software and hardware components, which when combined together can run applications that we have built to demonstrate the technology.
