Digital Museum

In museums, digital technology can be used to tell the background information about their exhibits. In this project, we aim to realize exhibits that merges the exhibits itself and their context, totally support the museum experience, and digital technology for the museum.

On-Site AR Exhibition System

On-Site AR Exhibition System” is an iOS application to interactively exhibit the past scenery of a certain place by superimposing it onto the current scenery shown on iPad.

Digital Diorama

"Digital Diorama" system is a novel mixed reality museum exhibition system to convey background information related to the exhibit intuitively.

Time-leaping Seat

The Time-leaping Seat enhances a static exhibit toward time axis by 3-D recording visitors and exhibits at museums.

Digital Display Case

This system displays a virtual exhibited object while keeping the interface of conventional display case and effectively conveys background information about the exhibits.

FoodLog

"Life Log Infrastructure for Food" project is a cooperative research with Aizawa Lab. and Sasaki Lab. at the Univ. of Tokyo, KDDI R&D Lab., and foo.log Inc. "Food" is one of the most important and regularly consumed factor in our daily life. However, so far, this has rarely been viewed as an object of information processing. In this research, we aim at developing an infrastructure for lifelog, with emphasis on food and food-related activities in our daily life. Especially our laboratory focuses on the method to capture, analyse, visualize and utilize food-related activities.

Yumlog

We improve eating habits by enhancing satisfaction of healthy meals with feedbacks which are how healthy others evaluate meals.

Table Talk Enhancer

Table Talk Enhancer is a tabletop system that enhances and balances mealtime conversations by feedback of lights on the surface.

Vocalog

Vocalog records and analyzes conversations in mealtime, and provides feedback to a user. It enhances mealtime communications.

Lifelog-based Future Prediction

Forecasting future situation on the highway by big data

We are developing the method by that we forecast future traffic state on the highway, using the past data, and purvey useful information to the users.

Future Diary

We develop Systems that forecast the rate of progression of daily tasks by analyzing lifelog. The system prevents future collision of tasks.

PRIMA

PRIMA can record and reconstruct the real space as 3-D data in realtime using four depth cameras.

Receiptlog and Expenditure Forecast

This system records purchase activities from receipts, and tells you amount and possibility of future consumption.

Multimodal & Crossmodal Interface

While visual and auditory information are mainly used for exsiting interfaces, other modalities are not used much. We are developing multi-modal interfaces such as haptic, olfactory and gustatory displays in order to realize intuitive virtual reality environments. Moreover, we are focusing on cross-modal interfaces which present ultra-realistic experience with limited sensory information by using cross-modal interactions.

ARAtouch

"ARAtouch" is a visuo-haptic system which is able to evoke the haptic sensation on the mobile device, without any haptic devices, only using haptic illusion.

Augmented Endurance

"Augmented Endurance" modifies perception of fatigue during handling midium-weight objects and augments our endurance by affecting our weight perception with AR technology

Tabletop Augmented Satiety

This is a tabletop system for affecting our perception of satiety and controlling energy intakes by controlling a size of a projected image around the food.

Augmented Satiety

"Augmented Satiety" is a method for modifying perception of satiety and controlling nutritional intake by changing the apparent size of food with augmented reality.

MagicPot

"Magic Pot" enables us to experience a haptic illusion as if users were touching a virtual magic pot shaped by users, even though they are touching only a physically static cylinder in fact.

Meta Cookie

"Meta Cookie" is a cross-modal gustatory display to change perceived taste of a cookie by overlaying visual and olfactory information onto a real cookie by using augmented reality.

Subjective VR & Reflex-based Interface

The purpose of this project involved assessing the efficacy of computer-generated emotion and establishing a method for integrating emotional experience. In the field of cognitive science, the ability to alter a bodily response has been shown to unconsciously generate emotions. We therefore hypothesized emotional experience could be manipulated by having people recognize pseudo-generated bodily reactions as changes to their own bodily reactions and are developing emotion evoking interfaces.

Incendiary reflection

"Incendiary reflection" can evoke positive and negative affect and manipulate preference decisions by the feedback of deformed facial expressions.

Interactonia Balloon

"Interactonia Balloon" is an artwork to raise awareness of own respiration, and evokes and enhances tense feeling by synergistic influence of intentional change of own respiratory condition and a paradoxical experience caused by active of the balloon depending on the condition.

Digital Public Art

Digital Public Art is a new genre of art produced by bringing information technology into public spaces and evolving media art into public art. We are convinced that by fusing the interactive and global characteristics of media technology - think of computers - with the powerful presence and the ability to transform locations of public art - think of sculpture - we can transcend these separate viewpoints to stimulate people's awareness of media technology.

Sharelog 3D

Sharelog 3D is a piece of interactive art that visualizes the history of trains the user took from contactless fare cards.

Controllable particle display using water drops

Research of touchable and volumetric visual display using water drops as pixels.

JUKE Cylinder

"JUKE Cylinder" is a piece of interactive art installation to augment sound images through hand interaction and to metamorphose hands into a musical instrument.

Sound Environment Interaction

This system enables to manipulate the transfer path of electricity, using the properties of sound waves.

Senior Cloud

ICT Platform for Improving Society by Circulating the Experience, Knowledge, and Skills of the Elderly

Toward inplementing Mosaic-type work for seniors

For having seniors work more flexiblely, we propose a mosaic-type work system in which elderly human resources are combined to form a single "virtual worker"

Support system of Time-mosaic formation for seniors

For realizing flexible work by seniors and their stable workforce, we propose a support system of time-mosaic formation for them.

An avator robot for spatial mosaic

We are developing an avator robot to have seniors work easily and remotely.

Other Projects

Ring Brings Kiss

"Ring Brings Kiss" is an entertainment system that aims to set the mood for kiss, and enjoy kiss as an entertainment.

Desktop Kingdom

"Desktop Kingdom" is a multi-user system that allows you to interact with AR objects through the tablet computers.

"Shikkuri" feeling in interaction in virtual reality space

We aimed to find out and evaluate the factors of "Shikkuri" feelings in doing unreal operations in VR space.

Divisible planar object detection for AR applications

This research proposes a divided planar-object detection method for augmented reality(AR) applications. It uses PROSAC and iterative homography calculation the multiple planar-object detection.
