ARLooper is an augmented reality mobile interface that allows multiple users to record sound and perform together in a shared AR space. ARLooper is an attempt to explore the potential of collaborative mobile AR instruments in supporting non-verbal communication for musical performances. With ARLooper, the user can record, manipulate, and play sounds being visualized as 3D waveforms in an AR space. ARLooper provides a shared AR environment wherein multiple users can observe each other’s activities in real time, supporting increasing the understanding of collaborative contexts.
