  • Abstract
  • This paper presents a multi-user virtual heritage application that allows children to experience and learn the hunting strategies depicted in a cave painting from 6000 BC. The application is based on a multi-touch vertical screen that allows for full-body interaction through carefully defined gestures that search to provide sufficient ecological naturalness and experimentation freedom to the users. This paper gives a detailed account on the experience and interaction design, agent programming and multi-touch technology. It also presents an experimental set-up, especially designed to assess the impact of the installation in the educational goal, the usability of the experience and the results obtained.
