E-Tech Talks (3): Look Different
Date/Time: Thursday, December 6th, 2:35pm - 2:50pm
Venue: Hall E, Experience Hall (B2F, E Block)


Summary: A new projection mapping technology for foods is demonstrated. The technology is based on edible retroreflectors that are optical devices made from edible foodstuff. Since visual recognition of the retroreflectors is simple and stable, projection mapping on foods can be installed easily and effectively.

Summary: The purpose of this installation is to demonstrate novel perceptual effects in which the compelling illusion of depth and transparency for paper materials is induced by the conventional light projection of cast shadow patterns. The audience can interactively enjoy experiences wherein objects and letters on a paper perceptually float up.

Venue: Hall E, Experience Hall (B2F, E Block)


Summary: This paper proposes VarioLight: a method for realizing dynamic projection mapping (DPM) onto a widely moving and finely deforming/rotating object, by combining a high-speed/low-latency projector and a mirror-based high-speed optical axis controller. It realized DPM applications such as projection sticking even to highly dynamic object and visualization of its dynamics.

Summary: “Tangible Projection Mapping” is dynamic appearance augmentation to object in user’s hands. This technique allows users to hold a target object freely and augments appearance of that in various postures by user’s manipulation. It can provide a deep sense of unity with the attractively enhanced object in hands.
