    Psychophysical Experiment Exploring Appearance Element for Realistic Clothes

    We aim to reveal an appearance element that maintains reality and reflects the element in CG applications such as augmented reality. This report focuses on realistic clothes surfaces because clothes are frequently used in applications. To understand what contributes to a realistic appearance, we explored perceptions from two psychophysical experiments.

    Exploring Outdoor Appearance Changes with Transient Scene Attributes

    Outdoor scene appearance changes dramatically with lighting and weather conditions, time of day, and season. We relate these visual changes to scene attributes, which are human-nameable concepts used to describe scenes. Using crowdsourcing and machine learning, we detect scene attributes in photographs and present an interface for browsing photocollections.

    Teleport: Space Navigation by Detecting the Self-Motion of a Mobile Device

    Inspired by the Boo’s doors in Monsters Inc., we propose the "Teleport" simulating a virtual gateway for users to go anywhere they want with a mobile device. It provides first person navigation by detecting the self-motion (view orientation and movement).
