High-end mobile devices are becoming increasing popular in every day life. Augmented Reality (AR) builds on this trend by combining mobile computing with connectivity and locationawareness.
In doing so, AR can provide a very rich user experience. In this paper we discuss the approach and development of an AR-based personal assistant, combining the familiar interface of a human person with the functionality of a location-aware digital information system. The paper discusses the main components of the system, including the anthropomorphic user interface as well as the results of an initial prototype evaluation.
