Presentation on Non-Solid diffusers: Bringing CVEs to reality

On Thursday 24th June THINKlab hosted a talk from Dr Diego Martinez Plasencia, Research Associate in Human-Computer Interaction, 3D Graphics at University of Bristol.

His presentation entitled ‘Non-Solid diffusers: Bringing CVE’s to reality’ explored formats for non intrusive virtual reality.

Back  in  1965,  Ivan  Sutherland  proposed  his  vision  of  the  Ultimate  Display .  Such  display  would  create  virtual objects  that  were  totally  undistinguishable  from  their  real  counterparts  (“the handcuffs  displayed  […]  would  be confining,  and  a  bullet  […]  would  be  fatal”).  This  vision  was  the  seed  for  research  in  the  fields  of  3D  displays, Virtual  Reality  (VR)  and  Augmented  Reality  (AR).  Recent  market  analyses  foresee  a  bright future  for  these technologies, with companies like Samsung or Sony competing for a dominating position on this rising market. read more
