Industrial uses of Augmented Reality (AR) are growing, however their uses are consistently fashioned with an emphasis on consumption, delivering additional information to the worker to assist them in the completion of their job. A promising alternative is to allow user data creation during the actual process by the worker performing their duties. This not only allows spatially located annotations to be produced, it also allows an AR scene to be developed in-situ and in real-time. Tangible markers offer a physical interface while also creating physical containers to allow for fluent interactions. This form factor allows both attached and detached annotations, whilst allowing the creation of an AR scene during the process. This annotated scene will allow asynchronous collaboration to be conducted between multiple stakeholders, both locally and remotely. In this paper we discuss our reasoning behind such an approach, and present the current work on our prototype created to test and validate our proposition.
