Abstract
This paperdescribes initial work on the Domisilica project at Georgia Tech. We are exploring the dual
augmentationof physicalandvirtual worlds in Domisilica and applyingthis novelconceptto supporthome
life beyond the boundaries of the actual house. We will demonstrate applications of dual augmentation in
supporting distributed communities through a home (the Regency)and a specificappliance(CyberFridge),
both of which serve as a communicationslink between physicaland virtual worlds. Three specifictypes of
communication are supported: direct (supporting real-time user-to-user interaction), indirect (interaction
mediated by devices such as games, a refrigerator, etc), and peripheral (supporting awareness of subtle
information).
Keywords: Augmented reality, augmented virtuality, home, ubiquitous computing
1 Introduction
Physical barriers such as time and distance have traditionally stood in the way of successfully building
