Acoustic Transparency and Auditory Mixed Reality (CHI’20)

This paper was published at ACM CHI’20, and explored the potential impact of acoustically transparent auditory headsets – effectively orientation tracked headphones that intermix real and virtual content – on consumer audio usage, and as a potential medium for auditory-only mixed reality augmentations, being a more affordable gateway to augmented reality. See the paper video, and accompanying online talk, below.
