This article presents a novel technique that combines eye-tracking with subtle image-space modulation to direct a viewer's gaze about a digital image. We call this paradigm <i>subtle gaze direction</i>. Subtle gaze direction exploits the fact that our peripheral vision has very poor acuity compared to our foveal vision. By presenting brief, subtle(More)
A method is described for texturing surfaces using <i>decals</i>, images placed on the surface using local parameterizations. Decal parameterizations are generated with a novel <i>O</i>(<i>N</i> log <i>N</i>) discrete approximation to the exponential map which requires only a single additional step in Dijkstra's graph-distance algorithm. Decals are(More)
We have created a system for capturing both the three-dimensional geometry and color and shading information for human facial expressions. We use this data to reconstruct photorealistic, 3D animations of the captured expressions. The system uses a large set of sampling points on the face to accurately track the three dimensional deformations of the face.(More)
Local shape descriptors can be used for a variety of tasks, from registration to comparison to shape analysis and retrieval. There have been a variety of local shape descriptors developed for these tasks, which have been evaluated in isolation or in pairs, but not against each other. We provide a survey of existing descriptors and a framework for comparing(More)
— We describe a complete, end-to-end system for taking well-composed photographs using a mobile robot. The general scenario is a reception, or other event, where people are roaming around talking to each other. The robot serves as an " event photographer " , roaming around the same space as the participants, periodically taking photographs. These images are(More)
A new experiment is presented which demonstrates the usefulness of an image space modulation technique called Subtle Gaze Direction (SGD) for guiding the user in a simple searching task. SGD uses image space modulations in the luminance channel to guide a viewer's gaze about a scene without interrupting their visual experience. The goal of SGD is to direct(More)
