Abstract

In the present paper we describe an inclusive tourist application, The Time Machine, that allows users to explore an environment or be guided along a trail while experiencing virtual sounds and get information (visual and auditory) at key locations in the environment. We report the application design and preliminary results from evaluations in a city environment. Results indicate that the Time Machine is fun, stimulating and usable for a wide range of users.
