AIR: A cross-domain interaction model for ubiquitous AR applications


This project explores the idea of cross-domain interaction using AR to make 3D printing easier.  The user brings 3D content, in this case a bunny, from the browser into 3D space and makes it real by directing inserting it into the 3D printer. The AR interface delivers an interconnected interaction model to an otherwise disjointed 3D printing process.
