Mixed Reality Games and Special Effects

Advisor: Nassir Navab
Supervision by: Alexander Ladikos

Abstract

The goal of this thesis is the creation of interactive mixed reality games and special effects using a multi-camera system. The system provides the 3D reconstruction of objects inside a working area and can be used to compose virtual objects and real objects in a mixed reality environment. This allows the user to interact with virtual objects and to create composite videos combining both real and virtual objects while correctly handling occlusions. Your task would be the design and the implementation of interactive games making use of this infrastructure as well as the creation of a short movie showcasing the system. This project requires good knowledge in C++. Previous experience with a 3D modeling software, e.g. Maya or 3D Studio Max, as well as a certain creativity and artistic sense would be advantageous.

Requirements

  • Experience in C++ programming
  • Previous experience with a 3D modeling software (Maya, 3ds max, ...) or willingness to quickly learn it
  • Interest to create a game scenario and a script for a short movie

What you get out of it

  • Experience in different fields of research in computer science: Computer Vision, Visualization, Software Engineering
  • Knowledge about 3D reconstruction
  • Work on an exciting research topic within an interdisciplinary and international research team
  • Finally a diploma thesis and your degree
