This short paper covers the advent of Project Cul. The researcher examined the feasibility of support for the combined usage of mobile operating systems (including Omni-Touch device), markerless augmented reality, global systems for mobile communications (hybrid positioning systems), and cloud computing (public and community cloud). Since Project Cul is in its initial phase, the existing version aims to reinvent adaptability across cultures using mixed technology and anticipates creating a game-based learning simulator to ease the adjustment period of an individual upon relocating to his or her destination country, using an interaction method coined by the researcher as “poke, swipe, and pinch”. Using this interaction method, users can experience Omni-Touch functionality by practicing accurate control of the hand on any surface or even in mid-air. A discussion of protocols to achieve the project aim, most similar work, how Project Cul is original, development methodology, and evaluation method are conducted.
