In this paper we present the first version of AugDesk, an affordable augmented reality prototype desk for sorting documents based on their relevance to an information need. The set-up is based on the findings from previous work in conjunction with a user-centred iterative design process to improve both the software and hardware configuration. In this initial version of the prototype the documents automatically appear on a table from an overhead projector and the user can control the movement and selection of these documents by using gestures, identified from a Microsoft Kinect Sensor. The first part of our work included recording users’ actions to identify the most popular interactions with virtual documents on a table and integrating these into AugDesk.
