Content-Adaptive Parallax Barriers for Automultiscopic 3D Display

This talk presents optimization of automultiscopic displays built using stacked pairs of LCDs. The 4D light field created by stacked LCDs is modeled as the tensor product of two 2D masks, limiting existing designs to rank-1 approximations. The approach achieves higher-rank reconstructions using time-multiplexed mask pairs that are independently optimized for each frame.

NiCE Formular Editor

Interactive whiteboards provide a powerful solution for educational applications. Especially for teachers, it is often difficult to explain difficult abstract mathematical problems without visual help. The NiCE Formular Editor provides a prompt visualization that can be very helpful to explanations of a complex subject.

3D Multitouch: When Tactile Tables Meet Immersive Visualization Technologies

After identifing the strengths and issues such a combination introduces, this project devised a system that combines head tracking, dual-view stereoscopic rendering, and multitouch interaction.

Z-touch: A Multi-Touch System That Detects Spatial Gesture Near the Tabletop

Introducing Z-touch, a multi-touch table that can detect spatial hand-gesture interaction near the tabletop surface. The system uses a combination of multilayered infrared (IR) laser plane and high-speed camera. Multilayered IR line-laser modules are synchronized with shutter signals from a high-speed camera.
