Although augmented reality (AR) is becoming more common in our society, there are few specialized end-user tools for appropriate AR content creation. Most tools are focused on creating entire 3D applications or require extensive knowledge in programming and 3D modeling. With reference to End-User Development (EUD), we present a design case study for an end-user-friendly authoring tool that allows domain experts to create individual AR avatars in the field of Human-Food Interaction. After reviewing current approaches and design guidelines, we designed and implemented FADER, a web-based tool for creating AR-based food avatars. Our evaluation shows that playful design fosters immersion, and that abstract placeholders and highly simplified controls empower non-developers to create AR content. Our study contributes to a better understanding of end-user needs and practices during the AR creation process and informs the design of future AR authoring tools.
