Adaptive Appearance Manipulation

Presenters: Amano Lab., Wakayama University, Japan
Abstract: Precisely designed illumination projection enables the alternation of apparent color, texture, and etc. in the real world. In this demonstration we exhibit our projector-camera feedback system that manipulates object appearance successively.

Fluidized bed interface (This demo will be exhibited only on 12th and 13th.)

Presenters: Yasushi Matoba and Satoshi Sugaya, Institute of Technologist, Japan
Abstract: We developed "Fluidized bed interface" by combining fluidized bed phenomenon with display technology. The surface of sand is a screen to show images and can be switched to normal sand state and liquid state quickly.

Dynamic projection mapping fusing high-speed vision and projection technologies

Presenters: Watanabe Lab,. Tokyo Institute of technology, Japan
Abstract: Dynamic projection mapping achieves high-speed sensing of dynamically-changing environment in real time, generates graphics, and projects them onto the target before it moves. This enables the fusion of physical reality and projected unreality. This paper reviews the impact of such ‘Post Reality’ and how this technology can be realized.

Shadowless Projector

Presenters: Kosuke Sato Lab., Osaka University, Japan
Abstract: We succeeded to build a projection mapping system that reduces shadows by occluders such as a human hand even when it touches a projected surface. Inspired by a surgical light that does not produce shadows on patient bodies, the group built a projection system using a wide are optical element to project images from wide directions onto the surface. As a result, when an occlude approaches the surface, only a portion of light is occluded and no clear shadow appears. This technology is expected to be used for novel projection mapping exhibition and advertisement where people can interactively touch on projection surfaces to control projected image contents, where shadows no longer distract the user experiences. It can also potentially be used in medical field where a visual guidance for an unexperienced doctor can be projected onto a patients body under surgery.

Projection mapping Artwork "What is My Left Eye Looking at?"

Presenters: Junko Sugimori, J. F. Oberlin University, Japan
Abstract: There is tacit knowing in art. Expression of an art work depends on the experience and the feeling of its creator. This paper reveals backgrounds for the projection-based spatial art works. This paper introduces the production process and expression of art works utilized with projection mapping and creator’s thinking.
