Abstract. Augmented Reality is a technology that allows the superimposition of virtual objects onto the real world. Various fields, such as education, medicine, and architecture, started adapting Augmented Reality technology in order to enhance the experience of the users of their systems. However, developing Augmented Reality application and its contents requires a specialized knowledge in computer programming, computer graphics, and software development, which results in only specific people being able to experience Augmented Reality. This paper describes a tool that allows users to produce content for Augmented Reality viewing without the need for specialized knowledge. Furthermore, the tool enables users to create and edit Augmented Reality content on the spot, without the need for a separate application in order to do so.
