Volume Slicing Display, University of Tokyo

"A system for interactive exploration of volumetric data using a tangible screen, called the Volume Slicing Display. The system tracks the shape and the position of a passive screen (a piece of plexiglass) on 3D space using a custom monocular high-speed vision system (Vision Chip) or Artoolkit markers; then a set of projectors project the corresponding slice of a 3D virtual object on the surface in real time. This experimental interface will enable multiple users to feel as if 3D virtual objects co-exist in real space, as well as to explore them interactively using cheap passive projection surfaces (plexiglass or even paper)."

This new display is insanely cool.

"The goal of this group is to research methods for capturing and manipulating information that is normally inaccessible to humans and machines. In doing so, we hope to create new ways of perceiving the world and interacting with technology. Our research methods span fields such as human-computer interaction, media arts, physiology, and ethics."
