This paper presents the development of an Augmented Reality (AR) and Virtual Reality (AR) pillar, a novel approach for showing AR and VR content in a public setting. A pillar in a public exhibition venue was converted to a four-sided AR and VR showcase, and a cultural heritage exhibit of ''Boatbuilders of Pangkor'' was shown. Multimedia tablets and mobile AR head-mountdisplays (HMDs) were provided for visitors to experience multisensory AR and VR content demonstrated on the pillar. The content included AR-based videos, maps, images and text, and VR experiences that allowed visitors to view reconstructed 3D subjects and remote locations in a 360 virtual environment. In this paper, we describe the prototype system, a user evaluation study and directions for future work.
