What is the problem addressed by the paper? How to represent smooth shapes? How to smooth surfaces? How to process range-scanned meshes? How to improv normal and boundary continuity? image credit Alexa, et al. What is the approach used to resolve the problem? In differential geometry, a smooth surface is characterized by the existence of smooth…
I am thrilled to announce that Social Street View has won the Best Paper Award at Web3D 2016, which was held next to SIGGRAPH 2016 in late August! Please visit the project website for more details: http://www.socialstreetview.com I also published my slides and videos.
Here is a brief summary of CHI 2016 from my point of view via Google Slides. The best paper in my view is: Haptic Retargeting: Dynamic Repurposing of Passive Haptics for Enhanced Virtual Reality Experiences
Reviews of ColourID: Improving Colour Identification for People with Impaired Colour Vision. http://dl.acm.org/citation.cfm?id=2702578 This paper introduces three new techniques to assist people with impaired color vision (ICV) to identify colors. Unlike traditional color identification software which suffers from speed, precision and generality for all ICV users, the proposed technique visualizes all colors from a big…
ISMAR 2015, the 14th IEEE International Symposium on Mixed and Augmented Reality, will be held in beautiful Fukuoka, Japan. Recently, the prestige ISMAR 2015 S&T Papers have come out: http://ismar.vgtc.org/ismar/2015/info/ismar-sessions/st-papers In order to investigate some insights into the publication data, I made the following statistics of ISMAR 2015 Science & Technology Papers. Congratulations to their groups! I am looking forward…
The Intelligent Trial and Error Algorithm introduced in the paper ‘Robots that can adapt like animals’ (Nature, 2015): the video shows two different robots that can adapt to a wide variety of injuries in under two minutes. A six-legged robot adapts to keep walking even if two of its legs are broken, and a robotic…
Today Sujal introduced Fairy Lights in Femtoseconds Project by Ochiai et al. to our group. Basically, it is a tangible holographic plasma in the mid-air or water or florescent (plates)! Their SIGGRAPH 2015 paper entitled “Fairy Lights in Femtoseconds: Aerial and Volumetric Graphics Rendered by Focused Femtosecond Laser Combined with Computational Holographic Fields” can be downloaded in arXiv….
[Summary] DynamicFusion: Reconstruction and Tracking of Non-rigid Scenes in Real-Time – CVPR 2015 Best Paper
It is not surprising for me to learn that Richard Newcombe, Dieter Fox, Steve Seitz won the best paper award by DynamicFusion in CVPR 2015. UW really rocks in the 3D reconstruction field. Summary First let’s read the abstract of the paper: We present the first dense SLAM system capable of reconstructing non-rigidly deforming scenes in…
I am collecting as many video as possible on YouTube from SIGGRAPH 2015 papers. Technical paper trailer: Here is the full playlist:
Greg Turk and Marc Levoy, Proc. SIGGRAPH ’94 Abstract Range imaging offers an inexpensive and accurate means for digitizing the shape of three-dimensional objects. Because most objects self occlude, no single range image suffices to describe the entire object. We present a method for combining a collection of range images into a single polygonal mesh…
