Session Chair: Dieter Schmalstieg, University of Graz

Lift-Off: Using Reference Imagery and Freehand Sketching to Create 3D Models in VR

Lift-Off is an immersive 3D interface for creating complex models with a controlled, handcrafted style. Curves sketched in 2D are interactively “lifted” into space to create a 3D scaffolding.

SoftAR: Visually Manipulating Haptic Softness Perception in Spatial Augmented Reality

SoftAR is a novel spatial-augmented-reality technique based on a pseudo-haptics mechanism that visually manipulates the sense of softness perceived by a user pushing a soft physical object.

Latency in Distributed Acquisition and Rendering for Telepresence Systems

In this project, telepresence latency is analyzed by decomposition into sub-latencies and compared with real latencies in a prototype by modifying two common latency-measurement methods.

From Motion to Photons in 80 Microseconds: Toward Minimal Latency for Virtual and Augmented Reality

A see-through DMD display with a 16 kHz update rate, combining post-rendering 2D offsets and just-in-time tracking updates with a novel modulation technique for turning binary pixels into grayscale.
