We present two fast-paced augmented reality games. One is a single-player game experienced through a head-worn display. The player manipulates a tracked board to guide a virtual ball through a dynamic maze of obstacles. Combining the 3DOF absolute orientation tracker on the head-worn display with 6DOF optical marker tracking allows the system to always account for the correct direction of gravity. The second game is a networked, two-player, first-person-shooter, in which tracked hand-held UMPCs are used to blast virtual dominoes off a table. Players’ virtual locations are warped to keep them from physically interfering with each other.
