This paper presents the development of a new e-(motion)-commerce system. The term "e-(motion)-commerce" is introduced to suggest a new system for product presentation, which offers a new experience to common e-commerce applications. The user of the e-(motion)-commerce system has the possibility to virtually visualize the product in his/her favoured real environment and get the feeling that the product already exists in the scene. This paper covers the technical aspects of the realization of augmented reality applications on a handheld device. It focuses on the development of solutions, which take into account the hardware limitations, namely the low performance CPU, the low display resolution and the restricted interaction form with the stylus. The implementation and evaluation of the system is achieved on a Compaq Ipaq handheld PC with an additional image capturing extension. The complete augmented reality application, i.e. the image capture, the image calibration, the 3D-reconstruction, and the 3D-graphics visualization takes place on the handheld device.
