This paper presents applications of augmented reality-based interaction that allow new ways of interaction with manufacturing and design environments. The first example shows a design verification system in which a prototype virtual model of a template is blended into a manufacturing environment. The second part describes an interactive system for specifying robotic tasks using virtual tools that allow an operator to reach into a live video scene and direct robots to use corresponding real tools in complex scenarios. Such an interwoven AR system will allow easy and intuitive control of manufacturing tasks and will help designers to preempt design defects or faults and reduce the prototype development time.
