This work proposes ARMouse with the aim of providing a precise and reliable solution for desk oriented AR interaction. ARMouse is a novel interaction paradigm that uses the mouse as the main interaction device for both desktop computing and plane based mobile AR 3D object translation, providing a seamless transition between AR and virtual spaces. In a within-subjects study featuring a selection and translation task ARMouse outperformed a touch based method in terms of perceived comfort, translation speed and translation accuracy. Furthermore, ARMouse unexpectedly also elicited higher levels of immersion among participants. This work shows the potential of a mouse based AR interaction paradigm and provides an initial step towards a universal interaction paradigm that supports hybrid AR desktop environments.
