    Although computer-aided design is widely used in the architecture-engineering-construction (AEC) industry, the exchange of information is still largely a manual process, where 2D paper drawings are reviewed to identify conflicts. Obviously, this process is time consuming and inefficient - not only do many conflicts go undetected but it's nearly impossible to quickly determine how design changes wi... View full abstract»

    Geovisualization is both a process for leveraging the data resources to meet scientific and societal needs and a research field that develops visual methods and tools to support a wide array of geospatial data applications. While researchers have made substantial advances in geovisualization over the past decade, many challenges remain. To support real-world knowledge construction and decision mak...

    The basic design challenge is to create a system that can display multiple images in a common area, occluding all but the appropriate pair of these images for each user. Thus, the system would deliver a unique image for each eyeball viewing the scene. Solutions fall into four general categories: Spatial barriers use the display's physical configuration and user placement to block users from seeing... View full abstract»

    We focus on the segmentation of human regions, an area that has had a significant amount of research. Our approach, is based on invisible thermal information that we can measure without any estimation. In fact, we measure infrared light radiation of the thermal information for keys hence we call our proposed system thermo-key. A color and thermal combination camera measures the temperature distrib... View full abstract»

    The Continuator is a usable musical instrument combining techniques from interactive and automatic learning systems. It learns and interactively plays with a user in the user's style. Music-generation systems have traditionally belonged to one of two categories: interactive systems in which players trigger musical phrases, events, or effects, such as the Karma musical workstation, and systems such...

    Augmented haptics lets users touch surface information of any modality. SmartTouch uses optical sensors to gather information and electrical stimulation to translate it into tactile display. Augmented reality is an engineer's approach to this dream. In AR, sensors capture artificial information from the world, and existing sensing channels display it. Hence, we virtually acquire the sensor's physi... View full abstract»

    The planar manipulator display uses physical objects for human-computer interaction. This system addresses the poor match between standard computer interfaces and human spatial awareness. The desire to take advantage of these abilities was our primary motivation in developing the planar manipulator display (PMD). The PMD uses movable physical objects as a means of human-computer interaction. Our w... View full abstract»

    The Hyperscore graphical computer-assisted composition system for users with limited or no musical training takes freehand drawing as input, letting users literally sketch their pieces. Designing an intelligent, intuitive system that enables novices-particularly children-to compose music is a difficult task. We can view the problem as a spectrum of tasks that range from the development of musical ... View full abstract»

    Smart-Its are self-contained, stick-on computers that attach to everyday objects. These augmented objects become soft media, enabling dynamic digital relationships with users and each other. In the Smart-Its project, we are developing technology to realize a vision of computation everywhere, where computer technology seamlessly integrates into everyday life, supporting users in their daily tasks. ...

    A new tool uses two types of dimensional navigation to display continuous 4D subsets of n-dimensional data. Thanks to the tool's embedded coordinate systems, researchers can better understand a model's underlying physical or mathematical process. Here, we describe a new method for visualizing data structure or models defined in higher-dimensional spaces. This technique is suitable for applications... View full abstract»

    One of the great benefits of the revolution in desktop publishing is that it has opened up the doors of typeface design to anyone with a computer and patience. Dozens of Web sites offer visitors thousands of free typefaces. Most of these free fonts are the work of inspired amateurs who had an idea for a typeface; they created it using commercial design tools, and then released their work into the ...
