    As a technique for bending hard materials like wood, using a slit pattern is known. However, it is difficult to simulate the physical properties of a cut material. Therefore, it is difficult to judge whether the designed curved surface can be made. In this research, we focused on the shape of the curved surface made by bending a cut material and proposed a method of designing the curved surface. We prepare a simple cut structure beforehand and measure the curvature shape that can be produced. This made it possible to design a 3D structure with smooth curved surfaces using cut materials by interactive operation.

    In the field of CG, billboards have been used to represent visual effects such as flames, smoke, and clouds. There are many known systems with such functionalities. However, since billboard representations do not depict the interior of objects, contradiction in appearance may occur depending on the location of the viewpoint. In addition, because of no accurate 3D depth information, the visual context may collapse when rendering with other objects. Furthermore, in a binocular virtual reality system, identical rendering results are generated for the left and right eyes, so that the closer the distance to the viewpoint is, the more three-dimensional cues get lost. In this research, we propose a system which can represent flames with minimal loss of stereoscopic effects from any viewpoint, and does not cause inconsistency in the binocular vision environment while providing an interface with common look and feel.

    In this paper, we propose a 3D simulation of cracks generated on concrete walls by considering multiple factors such as drying shrinkage and alkali-aggregate reaction. The proposed method divides the concrete into small voxels, and voxels are connected with springs. The simulation model is 3D-RBSM (3 Dimensional Rigid Body Spring Model) so that each voxel is not deformed. In addition, cracks grow as time passes by changing the spring strength according to the crack growth. As the result of the simulation, we have confirmed that cracks generated on the concrete wall are expanded into the inside of the concrete.

    There are known many animation works with the theme of music performance. Though they commonly aim at generating realistic motion of performers, sometimes they are not completely synchronized with music, and thus giving a sense of incompatibility. In order to make animation which is completely synchronized with music, tedious work are required. Therefore, in this research, we attempt to automatically generate blowing animation of characters playing wind instruments from sound sources.

    Breathing could be one of the effective animating elements for expressing emotions of living things. The main aim of this study is to expand this concept to abiotic things and to propose a method for generating animations expressing emotions through making them breathe in a pseudo manner. To begin with, we carried out a preliminary evaluation experiment regarding the emotional expressiveness of abiotic breathing animations, and we confirmed that several kind of emotion can be expressed even by the breathing motions applied to the abiotic object. When making the novel style of breathing animations, we specified a 2D ROI from an original image by surrounding it with a contour line, and then imposed a triangular mesh on the abiotic object. Then, from the resulting mesh, we extracted the submesh expressing the region of lungs, to which the operation of swelling and shrinking is applied. We succeeded in the effective expression of changes in internal state of individual abiotic objects and atmospheric situations suggested by different internal states of multiple objects.

    In this presentation, we propose an interactive hair simulation method considering interaction between water and hair. The proposed method approximates hair as a set of mass points and line segments, and reproduces the deformation of the hair style by controlling the movement of the mass point using a spring damper model. The behavior of wet hair considering real-time rendering is reproduced by the calculation of the influence of the water surrounding the hair by the simulation of the motion of the fluid based on Euler's solution.

    We aim to realize the entertainment of food and cooking by using IT. In this work, we applied projection mapping to “Takoyaki” and implemented a prototype system which is an interface of input/output for Takoyaki Projection Mapping (PM). Takoyaki PM means a case study of projection mapping that projects images and or animations onto Takoyaki. Then, the prototype system using Excel VBA receives strings from its input dialog and projects them onto holes of the Takoyaki plate as dots patterns. Takoyaki PM is also able to provide some information for customers waiting in line at stores. It is beneficial not only for the entertainment of food and cooking, but also a matter of practical business.

    Recently,non-professional creators are possible to create dimensional representations by a projection mapping. In addition, many studies have reported each projection method with an interactivity. However, there are not have studies focusing on users’ distance changes. Therefore, we developed an interactive projection mapping system which changes their projected images depending on the distance between users and the projected images. This paper describes the details of the developed system and the results of our experimental evaluations.

    Image feature keypoints of a natural image which is used as an AR marker are not uniformly. Furthermore, it is challenging problem to detect the marker which is changed such as folding or bending. Previous methods related with this study are proposed. For example, they are a method for detecting a nonplanar AR marker using depth information and a method of tracking the shape deformation of the marker from the state of the flat surface using movie. This paper aims to detect the nonplanar marker with a single camera. In order to estimate the shape of the nonplanar marker at the same time of the detection, we use keypoints of the AR marker divided into grid mesh. It, however, is difficult to detect the marker with the meshes, since there are not many the keypoints on each mesh. Assuming the keypoints of the marker are not uniformly, this paper proposes nonplanar marker detection with adaptive division mesh considering distribution of the keypoints and a method to complement the undetected meshes from the detected meshes.

    Laundry folding has the role that makes laundry compact and easy to store. The work is, however, less preferred than other housework. This paper, therefore, describes to present folding procedure by using clothes model fitting for laundry folding support. A cloth model is constituted by mesh, where each node has its state transition, in order to keep cloth folding procedure in the same model. The cloth model fits to a target cloth based on an energy function. Each node is relocated to a surrounding pixel to minimize the energy. IoU(Intersection over Union) is greater than 0.97 for all tests and the average difference of the folds becomes 4.7pixel.

    In this paper, we propose a method of bending operation in Ikebana simulator by using haptic devices. In order to move multiple objects such as hand and flower in a virtual space, these models should be integrated. However, if one object such as a flower is integrated with the right hand, the object cannot be moved with the left hand. First, of all, the target object is divided into 3 parts. The first is integrated with the right hand, and the second is integrated with the left hand, and the third is not integrated with either hand. Then, we can operate the target object with both hands by integrating all 3 parts. In addition, bending operation is performed by transforming the target object according to the distortion calculated with the angle formed by 2 haptic devices. The proposed method has enabled the operation with both hands, and the user interface in Ikebana Simulator has been improved.

    In art education, the act of dessin (Fr., drawing) has been used since olden times for improvement of painting techniques and learning artistic skill. This includes not only the technical aspects of imitating existing pictures or representing three dimensional objects in two dimensions, but also various educational effects for determining the essence of things. In the field of cinematic education, the effects of imitating existing cinematic content is greater than merely viewing it. However, this is costly and labor intensive, making it unrealistic. To that end, it is comparatively easy to imitate the design by analogizing the story boards, V-Con (Story-reel) and previs that are traditionally done in pre-production of cinematic content. Especially creating previsualization (previs) using 3DCG tools to make a dessin of existing movie, it becomes possible to temporally and spatially decrypt the cinematic content, and concrete understand and analyze the elements that make up the cinematic work. This method is called cinematography dessin, and uses simple techniques to learn and master complex cinematic languages. This paper will present this method of raising the educational effects, including the results of demonstrative experiments.

    No research has been conducted on the sound design of audio dramas composed only of sound. In this research, we used the method of video music/ acoustic research field traditionally done by Chion et al. I named audio dramas such as “for me” as “point of view shot type” audio drama. Based on the dichotomy which is the basis of the narrative function of movie music, Neumeyer advocated “5 binaries”. To my past research, timeline analysis was carried out by adding “Foreground/Background” from Neumeyer's 5 binaries. In this process, it was found that a lot of sounds equivalent to the middle of the voice and the sound effect were given in comparison with the movies. Especially, “Mouth Noise” proposed in this research turned out to be an important directing method.

    Since building Japanese sign language corpus requires tedious work; which is collecting large scale of video data and annotating information, assistance is necessary. This paper describes one of the assistant methods for annotation tasks using Japanese sign language word recognition. The proposed words recognition is composed of body parts tracking, feature extraction, and words recognition. The recognition divides a video and annotates word labels automatically. Moreover, we apply the assistant method to a client-server system; which has interfaces for building Japanese sign language corpus. The system enables simultaneous work by many people. We build a video database of Japanese sign language words to evaluate the proposed method. The database includes 92 Japanese sign language words of 1380 videos which are signed by four deaf peoples. The paper reports evaluation results as 54.5% and 30.4% for words recognition accuracy and work reduction ratio of annotation tasks, respectively.

    This research proposes a learning support system for drawing on actual human body model. For beginners at drawing picture, it is not easy to grasp the human body ratio of the model and to draw a picture in accordance with the skeletal structure. The proposed system extracts posture information from an actual human body model and drawn picture and generates skeleton line segments. Then, the system superimposes the skeleton line segments on the actual model using a transmission type display. Finally, the system gives an evaluation focused on the skeleton, using the posture data obtained by posture estimation from the drawn picture. In conclusion, we confirmed that the system improves skeletal cognitive ability and drawing skill, and is suitable for more practical drawing.

    Towards a safe survey of sewer pipe, we have proposed a drifting wireless network camera system with a spherical capsule. In this paper, we report the lighting subsystem for the sewer pipe survey system and a video rotation cancellation mechanism for the system. A strong lighting system is required to observe a crack in an underground pipe because a natural light is not available in the pipe. We clarified that the lighting system is sufficient to observe an evaluation image attached on the inside of an experimental sewer pipe. In addition, the effect of video rotation is reduced by using a gyro sensor introduced in the video rotation cancellation subsystem.

    We propose pop-up books using mixed reality (MR) and the possibilities of communication using that. In our proposal system, we use two pop-up books and two MR devices with Wi-Fi connection, and it’s for two participants. Two participants experience each pop-up book with wearing the MR device. The MR device generates virtual objects on the marker as a structure of the pop-up book. Each book with MR device functions as the MR pop-up book by itself, however we designed to enable interaction between each pop-up book. We think the system encourages interaction between participants.

    This work is a VR content for disaster mitigation education in Bhutan using PC based VR, HTC Vive. We were aimed at disaster mitigation enlightenment of the people of Bhutan, and they are possible to experience a virtual earthquake within the rammed earth building where earthquake damage is concentrated in Bhutan. We conducted a number of investigations to design the space and the situation where Bhutanese can experience realistic earthquakes. We set details of VR experience design based on the obtained information. Physical calculation was used for object groups, and it expresses the falling of furniture due to earthquake shaking. Earthquake expressions which a collapse on a wall and dust were also used. A player can move freely within the VR space by using Vive. In addition, three Vive tracker that can track real space are attached to hands and a chair, and it strengthens the sense of presence by seamlessly connecting within VR space.

    We present a wireless slide control device that enables sliding of objects with a virtual condition of slide friction. Actuation of the device is done using a ultrasonic motor and the (angular) velocity of the device is changed through wireless voltage control. Since the vibration of a ultrasonic motor is not visible, the device is promising for use in VR and MR based on virtual physics.

    For AR applications, we implemented Metal's programmable shader included in iOS with Swift and tried to implement wood grain and glass beads on objects floating in the air. Furthermore, by adding interactivity, we examined artistic expressions in AR applications through the creation of multiple interactive kinetic art works floating in the air. The technical foundation of this work is being developed by the authors for the iOS application production exercise of the Tokyo University of Technology's Faculty of Media Studies. In this paper, we present expressions studied together with the basic technology of this work.

    In Japan, flood disaster is frequently caused by typhoons and torrential rain. However, people’s awareness of flood disaster is not high, and low evacuation rates are in question. Since existing research and contents only display the water depth and obstacles at flooding, it is difficult to fully tell the danger of flood damage. In this research, we aim to develop a system that can tell the risk of flood disaster through the experience of walking on a flooded road using virtual reality(VR).

    Among remarkable attention VR contents production, the cenesthetic game type contents are attracting attention as content that suppresses VR sickness. However, this is only an obstruction to the feeling of immersion if it is simply used. In this research, we focused on the interface between the weight movement operation and the rotation operation, among the movement interface in the cenesthetic game type content, and verified which operation is effective in what kind of scene is reported.

    Learning the field of mechanics is particularly important in physics studying in junior and senior high school. Problems to be presented in the field of mechanics can be solved by the equation of motion, but it is necessary to determine the force acting on the object in order to construct the equation. However, since the force acting on the object is a very abstract concept which is invisible in nature, it is difficult for junior and senior high school students to understand the relationship of the forces acting on the object. Therefore, in this research, we will develop AR application that can visualize the force acting on the object by utilizing AR (Augmented Reality).

    In the VR content, existing operation method that moves on the VR space has an operation method which impairs immersive feeling. Therefore, we realized a user interface to smoothly move on the virtual space while suppressing VR sickness by using the motion of arm swing when walking. For the movement of the arm which becomes the input part to the system, it detects by attaching a device which can trace movement to the arm. In addition, by not using button input to start walking, operation with a device that does not have a button was also realized.

    Relationships between music and listeners are huge open data. We can observe interesting trends what types of music listeners prefer to listen to with such open datasets. This paper presents a technique to visualize the relationships between tunes and listeners. In detail, we construct bipartite graphs by treating tunes and listeners as two types of nodes, and relationships between tunes and listeners as edges. Our technique applies a clustering algorithm to a set of tunes and listeners respectively.

    In this paper, we introduced automatic estimation of so-called key-sounds aiming at automatic generation of the game data in the games classified as “Rhythm Action Games”. A key sound is the sound object extracted from the music and played according to the player's action. We performed machine learning experiments to classify the sound object into key-sound and other using acoustic and time series features, and obtained the accuracy higher than 90% in some situations.
