DescriptionWe succeeded in fabricating a holographic screen with higher transparency and luminance compared to conventional transparent screens. We propose a technique for creating a feeling of "actually there" reality to 2D images with the combination of a 360-degree transparent holographic screen display and sensing technology using multiple high-speed cameras.

DescriptionWe have developed a novel, full-color Retinal Scan Near-Eye Display. The unique relay optical system achieved high resolution (1280p x 720p), large field of view (47 degree diagonal), high transparency (over 85%), and handheld size. It also enables viewers to focus the virtual images at arbitrary distance from 25 centimeters to infinity.

Using Rapid Liquid Printing, a new process they developed, they have created a way to craft large, customized, dynamic products with complex shapes, internal chambers, intricate surfaces and other unique features. This printing process enables the individualized production of large-scale objects in a matter of minutes, ranging in scale from a vase to a sofa.

The predictability of spatial template improves the efficiency of acquisition, storage, and rendering. Thereby, modeling and rendering of larger indoor spaces is possible.
