Props Alive: A Framework for Augmented Reality Stop Motion Animation (2020)
Presentation / Conference Contribution
Casas, L., Kosek, M., & Mitchell, K. (2020). Props Alive: A Framework for Augmented Reality Stop Motion Animation. In 2017 IEEE 10th Workshop on Software Engineering and Architectures for Realtime Interactive Systems (SEARIS). https://doi.org/10.1109/SEA

Stop motion animation evolved in the early days of cinema with the aim to create an illusion of movement with static puppets posed manually each frame. Current stop motion movies introduced 3D printing processes in order to acquire animations more ac... Read More about Props Alive: A Framework for Augmented Reality Stop Motion Animation.

IRIDiuM+: deep media storytelling with non-linear light field video (2017)
Presentation / Conference Contribution
Kosek, M., Koniaris, B., Sinclair, D., Markova, D., Rothnie, F., Smoot, L., & Mitchell, K. (2017). IRIDiuM+: deep media storytelling with non-linear light field video. In SIGGRAPH '17 ACM SIGGRAPH 2017 VR Village. https://doi.org/10.1145/3089269.3089277

We present immersive storytelling in VR enhanced with non-linear sequenced sound, touch and light. Our Deep Media (Rose 2012) aim is to allow for guests to physically enter rendered movies with novel non-linear storytelling capability. With the ab...

Real-time rendering with compressed animated light fields. (2017)
Presentation / Conference Contribution
Koniaris, B., Kosek, M., Sinclair, D., & Mitchell, K. (2017, May). Real-time rendering with compressed animated light fields. Presented at 43rd Graphics Interface Conference

We propose an end-to-end solution for presenting movie quality animated graphics to the user while still allowing the sense of presence afforded by free viewpoint head motion. By transforming offline rendered movie content into a novel immersive repr... Read More about Real-time rendering with compressed animated light fields..

Rapid one-shot acquisition of dynamic VR avatars (2017)
Presentation / Conference Contribution
Malleson, C., Kosek, M., Klaudiny, M., Huerta, I., Bazin, J., Sorkine-Hornung, A., Mine, M., & Mitchell, K. (2017, March). Rapid one-shot acquisition of dynamic VR avatars. Presented at 2017 IEEE Virtual Reality (VR), Los Angeles, US

We present a system for rapid acquisition of bespoke, animatable, full-body avatars including face texture and shape. A blendshape rig with a skeleton is used as a template for customization. Identity blendshapes are used to customize the body and fa... Read More about Rapid one-shot acquisition of dynamic VR avatars.

IRIDiuM: immersive rendered interactive deep media (2016)
Presentation / Conference Contribution
Koniaris, B., Israr, A., Mitchell, K., Huerta, I., Kosek, M., Darragh, K., …Moon, B. (2016). IRIDiuM: immersive rendered interactive deep media. . https://doi.org/10.1145/2929490.2929496

Compelling virtual reality experiences require high quality imagery as well as head motion with six degrees of freedom. Most existing systems limit the motion of the viewer (prerecorded fixed position 360 video panoramas), or are limited in realism,...

Stereohaptics: a haptic interaction toolkit for tangible virtual experiences (2016)
Presentation / Conference Contribution
Israr, A., Zhao, S., McIntosh, K., Schwemler, Z., Fritz, A., Mars, J., …Mitchell, K. (2016). Stereohaptics: a haptic interaction toolkit for tangible virtual experiences. In SIGGRAPH '16: ACM SIGGRAPH 2016 Studio. https://doi.org/10.1145/2929484.297027

With a recent rise in the availability of affordable head mounted gear sets, various sensory stimulations (e.g., visual, auditory and haptics) are integrated to provide seamlessly embodied virtual experience in areas such as education, entertainment,...

The limits of pretending (2015)
Journal Article
Turner, P., Hetherington, R., Turner, S., & Kosek, M. (2015). The limits of pretending. Digital Creativity, 26(3-4), 304-317. https://doi.org/10.1080/14626268.2015.1091778

We propose that pretending is a cognitive faculty which enables us to create and immerse ourselves in possible worlds. These worlds range from the veridical to the fantastic and are frequently realised as stories varying from the fictional to the sci... Read More about The limits of pretending.
