3D Touch Point Detection on Load Sensitive Surface based on Continuous Fluctuation of A User Hand

Abstract: Expanding the concept of tangible interaction from designed interfaces to everyday objects around the life, we are working on 3D touch detection project, which has deployable load sensitive surface to capture the tangible interaction. On top of the key insight that human hand is continuously moving and never stops completely, our mathematical approach with pseudo inverse matrix method enabled the system to understand three dimensional touch interaction between user and objects above the 2D surface with embedded loadcels.

An Interface for Post-Match Play-by-Play Analysis of a Fighting Game Based on the Two Players' Eye Movements (Topic: Video Gaming)

Abstract: We propose an interface to support post-match play-by-play analysis of a hand-to-hand fighting game based on the two players' eye movements. An e-Sports match, like a professional chess match, is followed by analysis and commentary about the performance of the players. In this study, we constructed an interface for visualizing information about the match based on the players' eye movements to facilitate post-match play-by-play analysis and commentary. Our interface highlights commonalities and differences in the areas on the screen where the players focus their attention, as well as commonalities and differences in the direction of their eye movements.

Automatic Perforation System for Korean Traditional Painting - Dancheong (Topic: Image and Video Processing Applications)

Abstract: Dancheong is designed to decorate various parts of wooden buildings with beautiful and majestic colors.

Fukushima Nuclear Plant as a Synthetic Learning Environment

Abstract: Education-specific, 3D virtual worlds as simulations – termed Synthetic Learning Environments - are ideal for 21st century learning. An SLE project of the Fukushima Dai’ichi nuclear power plant was designed, modeled, programmed and implemented for education purposes, motivated by the fact that the disaster of March 2011 revealed much about Japan’s lack of preparedness for nuclear accidents. An iterative process of design, make, share and reflect was adopted by the student developers. In Japan, the creative process is termed TKF: Tsukutte つくって; Katatte かたって; Furikaeru ふりかえる.

Object Tracking-based Foveated Super-Resolution Convolutional Neural Network for Head Mounted Display (Topic: Image and Video Processing Applications)

Abstract: We propose a novel foveated super-resolution convolutional neural network (SRCNN) for HMD using an object tracking algorithm to reduce computation load for rendering high resolution images. We implement the object tracking on the region to compensate for a frame processing speed of eye-tracking devices, relatively slow to apply the resolution conversion. SRCNN applies to cognitive regions, and typical interpolation applies to other regions to reduce the rendering cost. As a result, the computation is decreased by 90.4059%, and PSNR is higher than the conventional foveated rendering algorithm.

Pre- and Post-Processes for Automatic Colorization using a Fully Convolutional Network

Abstract: Automatic colorization is a significant task especially for Anime industry. An original trace image to be colorized contains not only outlines but also boundary contour lines of shadows and highlight areas. Unfortunately, these lines tend to decrease the consistency among all images. Thus, this paper provides a method for a cleaning pre-process of anime dataset to improve the prediction quality of a fully convolutional network, and a refinement post-process to enhance the output of the network.

Real-time Measurement and Display System of 3D Sound Intensity Map using Optical See-Through Head Mounted Display (Topic: Information Visualization and Scientific Visualization)

Abstract: We propose a system of real-time measurement and visualization for a broad sound field by using optical see-through head mounted display (OSTHMD) with simultaneous localization and mapping (SLAM). The proposed system can superimpose the measurement results directly on the real space by OSTHMD and SLAM. The system also achieves free movement of measurement positions in a broad area without multiple AR markers. Visualizing the 3D sound intensity map, which is a stationary vector field representing the energy flow of sound, of an entire room by the proposed system helps us to design the sound field within a space.

Retinal HDR: HDR Image Projection Method onto Retina

Abstract: There are multiple problems in the area of near-eye display: field of view, vergence-accommodation conflict, image quality, and dynamic range. A study has been conducted to solve such problems. However, compared with other near-eye display tasks, a few studies have targeted HDR near-eye display. We propose HDR representation method for near-eye display combining Dihedral Corner Reflector Array (DCRA)-based retinal projection and a high-contrast projector.

Shape and Texture Reconstruction for Insects by using X-ray CT and Focus Stack Imaging (Topic: Geometry and Modeling)

Abstract: Reconstructing textured three dimensional (3D) models of insect specimens is important, since digital format has various advantages such as high space efficiency, high accessibility, degradation free and so on. This poster presents a technique for reconstructing a 3D shape and texture of an insect by using X-ray CT measurement and focus stack imaging. We construct a 3D shape by segmenting CT volume and obtain a texture from focus stack images taken from multiple viewpoints. By combining the both, we achieved to reconstruct highly detailed shapes and textures of insect specimens.

Simulating Kimono Fabrication based on the Production Process of Yuki-tsumugi (Topic: Image and Video Processing Applications)

Abstract: Yuki-tsumugi is a traditional Japanese silk fabric. In the production of this silk fabric, a splashed pattern based on a picture is first created on a sheet of exclusive grid paper. Second, piece goods is woven based on the pattern plan. Finally, a kimono is produced from the piece goods. However, estimating the appearance of changes to the kimono during each step of the production is difficult. Therefore, we propose a method for generating a kimono image of Yuki-tsumugi from a picture based on the actual production process.

Simulation of Different Materials Texture in Virtual Reality through Haptic Gloves Using Vibrating Cells (Topic: Human-Computer Interaction)

Abstract: This article explores the possibilities of a light and inexpensive way of doing haptic feedback through texture simulation using tactile vibration. With the popularization of virtual reality, the field of haptic feedback is in turmoil. The goal in this study is to expose a moderately realistic but cheap way of simulating haptic feedback including the texture of a surface, to propose a system accessible by the great majority.

Tactile Microcosm of ALife: Interaction with Artificial Life by Aerial Mixed Reality Display

Abstract: Holographic-look small fish is floating within the water filled in a petri dish. A user can enjoy interacting with the simulated schooling fish-like artificial life through aerial imaging and haptic feeling. The virtual creatures moves autonomously by combination of a predator-prey model and BOIDs algorithm implemented by a potential method.

Tentacle Flora: Lifelike Robotic Sculpture (Topic: Human-Computer Interaction)

Abstract: The Tentacle Flora is a robotic sculpture inspired by a vision of a colony of the sea anemone growing on the coral. A shape-memory alloy actuator is used as tentacles and is composed of a BioMetal Fiber such that it can bend in three directions. The top of the actuator glows softly mimicking a bioluminescent organism using a full colored LED. The Tentacle Flora induces the beauty, wonder, and existence of living sea anemones in the depths of the ocean.

Vector Graphics Editing with Interweaving and Penetrating (Topic: Geometry and Modeling)

Abstract: In this paper, we develop a web-based vector graphics interweaving and penetrating editing system. We propose a data structure to dealing with interweaving and penetrating, allowing users to assign depth value for each edge of a polygon. As a result, when we click on a polygon and move it to interweave with another one, the intersecting edge is calculated using linear interpolation of the depth values. In contrast, the conventional SVG format arranges layers to separate two polygons for interweaving and penetrating.
