    • A Superwide-FOV Optical Design for Head-Mounted Displays 

      Rakkolainen, Ismo; Turk, Matthew; Höllerer, Tobias (The Eurographics Association, 2016)
      We present a new optical design for head-mounted displays (HMD) that has an exceptionally wide field of view (FOV). It can cover even the full human FOV. It is based on seamless lenses and screens curved around the eyes. ...
    • Effects of Viewing Condition on User Experience of Panoramic Video 

      Passmore, Peter J.; Glancy, Maxine; Philpot, Adam; Roscoe, Amelia; Wood, Andrew; Fields, Bob (The Eurographics Association, 2016)
      Panoramic video arises at the convergence of TV and virtual reality, and it is necessary to understand how these technologies interact to affect user experience in order to produce useful content. TV and film makers have ...
    • Passive Arm Swing Motion for Virtual Walking Sensation 

      Saka, Naoyuki; Ikei, Yasushi; Amemiya, Tomohiro; Hirota, Koichi; Kitazaki, Michiteru (The Eurographics Association, 2016)
      The present paper describes the characteristics of an arm swing display as a part of the multisensory display for creation of walking sensation to the user who is sitting on a vestibular display (a motion chair). The passive ...
    • MR Work Supporting System Using Pepper's Ghost 

      Tsuruzoe, Hiroto; Odera, Satoru; Shigeno, Hiroshi; Okada, Ken-ichi (The Eurographics Association, 2016)
      Recently MR (Mixed Reality) techniques are used in many fields, and one of them is work support. Work support using MR techniques can display work instructions directly in the work space and help user to work effectively ...
    • Real-Time 3D Peripheral View Analysis 

      Moniri, Mohammad Mehdi; Luxenburger, Andreas; Schuffert, Winfried; Sonntag, Daniel (The Eurographics Association, 2016)
      Human peripheral vision suffers from several limitations that differ among various regions of the visual field. Since these limitations result in natural visual impairments, many interesting intelligent user interfaces ...
    • From Observations to Collaborative Simulation: Application to Surgical Training 

      Claude, Guillaume; Gouranton, Valérie; Caillaud, Benoit; Gibaud, Bernard; Jannin, Pierre; Arnaldi, Bruno (The Eurographics Association, 2016)
      In surgical training, Virtual Reality systems are mainly focused on technical surgical skills, leaving out procedural aspects. Our project aims at providing a novel approach to the use of Virtual Reality addressing this ...
    • Blurry (Sticky) Finger: Proprioceptive Pointing and Selection of Distant Objects for Optical See-through based Augmented Reality 

      Yu, Ja Eun; Kim, Gerard J. (The Eurographics Association, 2016)
      Most AR interaction techniques are focused on direct interaction with close objects within one’s reach (e.g. using the hands). Interacting with distant objects, especially those that are real, has not received much attention. ...
    • An Efficient Interpolation Approach for Low Cost Unrestrained Gaze Tracking in 3D Space 

      Scheel, Christian; Islam, A. B. M. Tariqul; Staadt, Oliver (The Eurographics Association, 2016)
      We present a first attempt to use interpolation based approach to combine a mobile eye tracker with an external tracking system to obtain a 3D gaze vector for a freely moving user. Our method captures calibration points ...
    • AquaCAVE: An Underwater Immersive Projection System for Enhancing the Swimming Experience 

      Yamashita, Shogo; Zhang, Xinlei; Miyaki, Takashi; Rekimoto, Jun (The Eurographics Association, 2016)
      AquaCAVE is an underwater immersive projection environment which faithfully reproduces the swimming experience in the virtual space. AquaCAVE is inspired by the surrounding projection system known as the CAVE Automatic ...
    • Simulation based Camera Localization under a Variable Lighting Environment 

      Mashita, Tomohiro; Plopski, Alexander; Kudo, Akira; Höllerer, Tobias; Kiyokawa, Kiyoshi; Takemura, Haruo (The Eurographics Association, 2016)
      Localizing the user from a feature database of a scene is a basic and necessary step for presentation of localized augmented reality (AR) content. Commonly such a database depicts a single appearance of the scene, due to ...
    • The Effects of Indirect Real Body Cues of Irrelevant Parts on Virtual Body Ownership and Presence 

      Jung, Sungchul; Hughes, Charles E. (The Eurographics Association, 2016)
      The employment of visual, auditory and tactile senses directly related to specific body limbs associated with task performance has been shown to give a person a perception of body ownership. However, there is much less ...
    • View Dependent Tone Mapping of HDR Panoramas for Head Mounted Displays 

      Cutchin, Steve; Li, Yuan (The Eurographics Association, 2016)
      Head mounted display(HMD)s are characterized by relatively low resolution and low dynamic range. These limitations significantly reduce the visual quality of photorealistic captures on such displays. In this paper we present ...
    • Synchronized Scene Views in Mixed Virtual Reality for Guided Viewing 

      Vazquez, Iker; Cutchin, Steve (The Eurographics Association, 2016)
      Virtual Reality devices are available with different resolutions and fields of view. Users can simultaneously interact within environments on head mounted displays, cell phones, tablets, and PowerWalls. Sharing scenes ...
