This paper presents results of an experiment set up to exploit the impact of using Augmented Reality (AR) whilst groups of engineering design students from Malta, Scotland, London and Hungary were collaborating on designing different parts making up a car seat belt mechanism. In particular, the experiment focuses on the distributed, real-time evaluation of the emerging design solution. The results achieved are encouraging and the paper contributes insights of the suitability of using AR in distributed and collaborative design evaluation scenarios.
