Many historical and cultural sites have been demolished due to reckless urban development projects. There have been many attempts to reconstruct damaged historical and cultural sites like Pimatgol, Cheonggyecheon, and the Sewoon shopping district in South Korea using digital technology, to revive their old glory. AR Teleport is a mobile-augmented-reality application for reconstructing such areas for mobile phones. The users can travel to the past from the present sites via AR Teleport, and can attempt rich movement-based interactions like jumping, blowing a breath, wiping with a finger, and touching buttons on a phone. In this study, how these rich interactions affect the interests and awareness level of the users was looked into. AR Teleport will open a new path of digital reconstruction for smartphones via rich interactions.
