A framework for remote 3D interaction with handheld devices: Application to a 3D heritage gallery prototype


In this work we present a framework for fast developing of remote controlled 3D applications of digital heritage. The framework relies on standard technologies and does not have special hardware requirements since just a smartphone, a remote 3D application and a wireless connection are required to set up the system, making it ideal for live environments where attenders can use their own smartphone to interact with remote 3D digital content. The framework provides a set of single-handed interaction techniques for smartphones and also provides with connection capabilities allowing to remotely interact with 3D content by combining the modern 3D sensing capabilities of these devices with touch-screen inputs. The prototype was set up and presented at the Digital Heritage 2015 Exposition, where attenders were able to remotely interact with 3D heritage models.
