Google’s Autoflip Can Intelligently Crop Videos

Google has released an open-source tool, Autoflip, that could make bad cropping a thing of the past by intelligently reframing video to correctly fit alternate aspect ratios. In a blog post, Google’s AI team wrote that footage shot for television and desktop computers normally comes in a 16:9 or 4:3 format, but with mobile devices Read more about Google’s Autoflip Can Intelligently Crop Videos[…]

Delta and Misapplied Sciences introduce parallel reality – a display that shows different content to different people at the same time without augmentation

In a ritual I’ve undertaken at least a thousand times, I lift my head to consult an airport display and determine which gate my plane will depart from. Normally, that involves skimming through a sprawling list of flights to places I’m not going. This time, however, all I see is information meant just for me: Read more about Delta and Misapplied Sciences introduce parallel reality – a display that shows different content to different people at the same time without augmentation[…]

LEDs in routers, power strips, and more, can ship data to the LightAnchors AR smartphone app

A pentad of bit boffins have devised a way to integrate electronic objects into augmented reality applications using their existing visible light sources, like power lights and signal strength indicators, to transmit data. In a recent research paper, “LightAnchors: Appropriating Point Lights for Spatially-Anchored Augmented Reality Interfaces,” Carnegie Mellon computer scientists Karan Ahuja, Sujeath Pareddy, Read more about LEDs in routers, power strips, and more, can ship data to the LightAnchors AR smartphone app[…]

On-Device, Real-Time Hand Tracking with MediaPipe

The ability to perceive the shape and motion of hands can be a vital component in improving the user experience across a variety of technological domains and platforms. For example, it can form the basis for sign language understanding and hand gesture control, and can also enable the overlay of digital content and information on Read more about On-Device, Real-Time Hand Tracking with MediaPipe[…]

3D volumetric display creates hologram-like tactile animated objects with sound using a polystyrene bead thrown around at high pace

Researchers in Sussex have built a device that displays 3D animated objects that can talk and interact with onlookers. A demonstration of the display showed a butterfly flapping its wings, a countdown spelled out by numbers hanging in the air, and a rotating, multicoloured planet Earth. Beyond interactive digital signs and animations, scientists want to Read more about 3D volumetric display creates hologram-like tactile animated objects with sound using a polystyrene bead thrown around at high pace[…]

Smallest pixels ever created, a million times smaller than on smartphones, could light up color-changing buildings

The smallest pixels yet created—a million times smaller than those in smartphones, made by trapping particles of light under tiny rocks of gold—could be used for new types of large-scale flexible displays, big enough to cover entire buildings. The colour pixels, developed by a team of scientists led by the University of Cambridge, are compatible Read more about Smallest pixels ever created, a million times smaller than on smartphones, could light up color-changing buildings[…]

Color-Changing LEDs Pave the Way to Impossibly High Screen Resolutions

An international collaboration between several universities around the world has led to an innovation in LEDs that could potentially result in a giant leap forward when it comes to increasing the resolution on TV screens and mobile devices. For the first time ever, a single LED can now change color all by itself. The current Read more about Color-Changing LEDs Pave the Way to Impossibly High Screen Resolutions[…]

Scientists Found a Way to Make Inexpensive, Solid-Looking 3D Holograms / volumetric displays

Researchers at Brigham Young University in Utah made something they’re calling an Optical Trap Display (OTD). The device traps a tiny opaque particle in mid-air using an invisible laser beam, then moves the beam around a preset path in free space. At the same time, it illuminates the particle with red, green, or blue lights. Read more about Scientists Found a Way to Make Inexpensive, Solid-Looking 3D Holograms / volumetric displays[…]

Asus Bezel-Free Kit uses illusion to hide bezels in multimonitor setups

The concept is simple. Thin lenses are placed along the seams where screens meet; they contain optical micro-structures that refract light, bending it inward to hide the bezels underneath. […] The kit’s optical obfuscation is designed to work at a specific angle. We selected 130° because it offered the best balance of comfort and immersion Read more about Asus Bezel-Free Kit uses illusion to hide bezels in multimonitor setups[…]

Researchers Discover a Method That Could Triple Our Screen Resolutions

The researchers have outlined the technical details in a new study published in Nature. Basically, what they’ve done is figure out a method to control subpixels with voltage. Each pixel on an LCD screen contains three subpixels. Each of those subpixels handles one of three colors: red, green or blue. A white backlight shines through Read more about Researchers Discover a Method That Could Triple Our Screen Resolutions[…]

World’s thinnest hologram paves path to new 3D world – RMIT University

Now a pioneering team led by RMIT University’s Distinguished Professor Min Gu has designed a nano-hologram that is simple to make, can be seen without 3D goggles and is 1000 times thinner than a human hair. “Conventional computer-generated holograms are too big for electronic devices but our ultrathin hologram overcomes those size barriers,” Gu said.

Projection mapping on a moving surface

This research aims at overcoming this limitation and realizes dynamic projection mapping in which dynamically-changing real-world and virtual visual information are completely merged in the level of human visual perception. This high-speed dynamic projection mapping requires a high-speed projector enabling high-frame-rate and low-latency projection. In order to meet this demand, we have developed a high-speed Read more about Projection mapping on a moving surface[…]
