|Title:||Merging Real and Virtual Experiences-Interactive Systems by Display Based Computing|
|Date:||5 March 2012|
|Abstract:|| Dr. Maki Sugimoto, Assistant Professor at Keio University, will present his work on Merging Real and Virtual Experiences.|
Merging real and virtual is an important topic when we think about human computer interactions with Virtual Reality and Augmented Reality techniques. In this talk, we introduce several examples of interactive systems by special projection techniques which integrate real and virtual experiences. The first example is a gaming environment named Augmented Coliseum in which users can play real toys with virtual gaming functions. The second example is Animated Paper: a motion prototyping platform. In this system we integrate a paper based motion designing platform with a laser projection technique. The third example is BYU-BYU-View: a wind communication interface through a projection screen. You can communicate with virtual environments and remote environments by blowing targets on the screen.
