This demonstration presents a development of an Augmented Reality (AR) and Virtual Reality (AR) pillar, a novel approach for showing AR and VR content in a public setting. A pillar in a public exhibition venue was converted to a four-sided AR and VR showcase. A cultural heritage theme of Boatbuilders of Pangkor was been featured in an experiment of the AR and VR Pillar. Multimedia tablets and mobile AR head-mount-displays (HMDs) were freely provided for the public visitors to experience multisensory content demonstrated on the pillar. The content included AR-based videos, maps, images and text, and VR experiences that allowed visitors to view reconstructed 3D subjects and remote locations in a 360 virtual environment. A miniature version of the pillar will be used for the demonstration where users could experience features of the prototype system.
