    Publication Year: 2013, Page(s): xviii
    Request permission for commercial reuse | Click to expandAbstract | PDF file iconPDF (155 KB)

    Summary form only given. Virtual reality has gone from research to educational tool to indispensible clinical application in patient care. A brief review of the current status of the use of VR in medicine will provide the springboard for the current gaps that provide future opportunities in simulation as well as an introduction to new advanced technologies that are revolutionizing medicine and whi...

    Summary form only given. Jet packs, self-driving cars, universal translators, space tourism; many of the science fiction dreams of yesterday are on the verge of becoming realities of today and promise to transform the world of tomorrow. We have complex communicators/supercomputers in our pockets that would make Captain Kirk proud; robotic dogs that could play fetch with R2D2; and computers, though... View full abstract»

    Cyberspace technology often grants us (or others) control over our self-representations. At the click of a button, one can alter our avatars' appearance and behavior. Indeed, in virtual reality we can often appear to others as ideal in stature and weight, what ever we want in terms of age and gender, and exhibit perfect form while surfing a forty foot wave. Centuries of philosophical discussion an... View full abstract»

    In Augmented Reality (AR), careless augmentations can easily lead to information overflow. Especially on small screen devices, only a limited amount of information can be displayed comprehensively. Compact visualization filters data by reducing redundancies and creating a layout of the remaining information. Previously, this approach was applied to create static compact explosion diagrams. In this... View full abstract»

  • Mixed simulators: Augmented physical simulators with virtual underlays

    Publication Year: 2013, Page(s):7 - 10
    Cited by:  Papers (2)  |  Patents (1)

    We introduce a taxonomy for mixed simulation focusing on mixed simulators with physical exteriors augmented with virtual underlays for practicing medical procedures such as central venous access (CVA). We used CT and MRI imaging and 3D printing to develop anatomically authentic mixed simulators, i.e., exact physical and/or virtual replicas of their human models. Embedded 6 DOF magnetic sensors mon... View full abstract»

    We introduce the concept of the infinite canvas as a metaphor for the immersive visual exploration of very large image datasets using a natural walking interface. The interface allows the user to move along the display surface and to be continuously exposed to new data, essentially exploring the horizontal axis of an arbitrarily long canvas. Our system provides a spiral navigation interface that s... View full abstract»

    This paper describes the impact of display resolution and luminance on the responses of participants in a behavioral study that used a projection-based Immersive Virtual Reality System. The scenario was a virtual bar where participants witnessed a violent attack of one person on another due to an argument about support for a soccer club. The major response variable was the number of interventions ... View full abstract»

    In this paper we present a novel interaction framework for augmented reality, and demonstrate its application in an interactive AR exposure treatment system for the fear of spiders. We use data from the Microsoft Kinect to track and model real world objects in the AR environment, enabling realistic interaction between them and virtual content. Objects are tracked in three dimensions using the Iter... View full abstract»

    In this paper we propose a general-purpose telepresence system design that can be adapted to a wide range of scenarios and present a framework for a proof-of-concept prototype. The prototype system allows users to see remote participants and their surroundings merged into the local environment through the use of an optical see-through head-worn display. Real-time 3D acquisition and head tracking a... View full abstract»

  • A robust camera-based method for optical distortion calibration of head-mounted displays

    One of the problems in using head-mounted displays (HMDs) is that the virtual images shown through the HMDs are usually distorted due to their optical distortions. In order to correctly compensate the optical distortions through a pre distortion technique, accurate values of the distortion parameters are required. Although several distortion calibration methods have been developed in prior work, t... View full abstract»
