3D imaging with time of flight cameras: theory, algorithms and applications

This course from SIGGRAPH 2014 covers 3D imaging applications for time ­of ­flight (ToF) cameras, focusing on low-cost and off -the­-shelf imaging systems.

Pinlight displays: wide field of view augmented reality eyeglasses using defocused point light sources

This paper from SIGGRAPH 2014 presents a novel design for smaller augmented reality glasses that offer a wide field of view.

Darkroom: compiling high-level image processing code into hardware pipelines
