Description:


    This project proposes a head-mounted projector (HMP) using the X’tal Vision (Crystal Vision) technology that was demonstrated in Enhanced Realities at SIGGRAPH 98. With X’tal Vision (a projector with a small iris and a retroreflective screen), users can observe stereoscopic images with an almost-correct occlusion relationship between the virtual and the real environment.

    AT SIGGRAPH 99, the HMP is demonstrated in three applications.

    1.Virtual images of a skeleton that make a patient’s body appear to be transparent.
    2. A paper-type display.
    3. Optical camouflage suitable for visuo-haptic integrated display.
