Abstract / Summary

Although hardware and software for Augmented Reality (AR) ad-vanced rapidly in recent years, there is a paucity and gap on the design of immer-sive storytelling in augmented and virtual realities, especially in AR. In order to fill this gap, we designed and developed an immersive experience based on Ho-loLens for the National Holocaust Centre and Museum in the UK to tell visitors the Kindertransport story. We propose an interactive narrative strategy, an input model for Immersive Augmented Reality Environment (IARE), a pipeline for asset development, the design of character behavior and interactive props module and provide guidelines for developing immersive storytelling in AR. In addition, evaluations have been conducted in the lab and in situ at the National Holocaust Centre and Museum and participants’ feedback were collected and analysed.
