The possible interactions with Mobile Augmented Reality applications today are largely limited to on-screen gestures and spatial movement. There is an opportunity to design new interaction methods that address common issues and go beyond the screen. Through this project, we explore the idea of using a second phone as a controller for mobile AR experiences. We develop prototypes that demonstrate the use of a second phone controller for tasks such as pointing, selecting, and drawing in 3D space. We use these prototypes and insights from initial remote evaluations to discuss the benefits and drawbacks of such an interaction method. We conclude by outlining opportunities for future research on Dual Phone AR for multiple usage configurations, and in collaborative settings.
