    Augmented reality (AR) has been part of computer graphics methodology for decades. A number of prototype AR systems have shown the possibilities this paradigm creates. Mixing graphical annotations and objects in a user's view of the surrounding environment offers a powerful metaphor for conveying information about that environment. AR systems' potential still exceeds the practice. In fact, most AR... View full abstract»

    The development of a microchannel for fluid-mixing applications comes from the recent interest in microfluidic device applications in biology. Microfluidics refers to fluid flow and transport phenomena associated with these devices. The basic idea of developing microfluidic devices is to shrink the physical dimensions of most commonly used processors - that is, using miniaturization and function i... View full abstract»

    Transferring research from the laboratory to mainstream applications requires the convergence of people, knowledge, and conventions from divergent disciplines. Solutions involve more than combining functional requirements and creative novelty. To transform technical capabilities of emerging mixed reality (MR) technology into the mainstream involves the integration and evolution of unproven systems... View full abstract»

    Virtual reality (VR) is useful for treating several psychological problems, including phobias such as fear of flying, agoraphobia, claustrophobia, and phobia to insects and small animals. We believe that augmented reality (AR) could also be used to treat some psychological disorders. AR and VR share some advantages over traditional treatments. However, AR gives a greater feeling of presence (the s... View full abstract»

    The 2003 International Symposium on Mixed and Augmented Reality was accompanied by a workshop on potential industrial applications. The organizers wisely called it potential because the real use of augmented reality (AR) in an industrial context is still in its infancy. Our own experience in this field clearly supports this viewpoint. We have been actively involved in the research, development, an... View full abstract»

    The raw size of a high-dynamic-range (HDR) image brings about problems in storage and transmission. Many bytes are wasted in data redundancy and perceptually unimportant information. To address this problem, researchers have proposed some preliminary algorithms to compress the data, like RGBE/XYZE, OpenEXR, LogLuv, and so on. HDR images can have a dynamic range of more than four orders of magnitud... View full abstract»

    Mobile devices have evolved to a point where interactive 3D graphics is becoming feasible. The first standardized 3D programming interfaces for mobile devices - OpenGL ES for native C/C++ and Mobile 3D Graphics (M3G) for Java applications - are now available to hardware vendors and application developers. The interfaces complement rather than compete with each other and can share the same underlyi... View full abstract»

    Dance notation systems, like music notes, enable documentation of symbolic representations of movement as signs on paper for individual analysis and interpretation. Today, dance notation systems operate within a digital environment in dance notation applications that facilitate the process of recording movement. The author argues that a key objective in the development of these applications should... View full abstract»
