Augmented reality research tackles blurry vision

Augmented reality research tackles blurry vision

Fresh research from Dartmouth’s Visual Computing Lab demonstrates how augmented reality could be used to help people with reduced vision read signs in their environment. The team not only designed an application able to detect and display enhanced text via Microsoft’s HoloLens, they conducted a behavioral experiment to validate their system’s effectiveness.

New research lets artists create more realistic and controllable CGI

A new theory based on the physics of cloud formation and neutron scattering could help animators create more lifelike movies, according to a Dartmouth-led study. Software developed using the technique focuses on how light interacts with microscopic particles to develop computer-generated images.

"Smart" Spray Paint Cans Developed by VCL Professor and Team

Prof. Wojciech Jarosz, together with Romain Prévost (ETH Zurich/Disney Research Zurich), Alec Jacobson (ETH Zurich/Columbia University), and Olga Sorkin-Hornung (ETH Zurich) have developed a computationally-assisted spray painting system that allows novices to spray paint accurate reproductions of photographs as large murals. The research appears in April's issue of the journal Computers & Graphics.
