We present a sketching interface for quickly and easily designing freeform models such as stuffed animals and other rotund objects. The user draws several 2D freeform strokes interactively on the screen and the system automatically constructs plausible 3D polygonal surfaces. Our system supports several modeling operations, including the operation to(More)
In this paper we discuss the application of the dynamic clustering feature of hash to a relational data base machine. By partitioning the relation using hash, large load reductions in join and set operations are realized. Several machine architectures based on hash are presented. We propose a data base machineGRACE which adopts a novel relational algebraic(More)
We propose a process model for hierarchical perceptual sound organization, which recognizes perceptual sounds included in incoming sound signals. We consider perceptual sound organization as a scene analysis problem in the auditory domain. Our current application is a music scene analysis system, which recognizes rhythm, chords, and source-separated musical(More)
We propose <i>interactive beautification</i>, a technique for rapid geometric design, and introduce the technique and its algorithm with a prototype system Pegasus. The motivation is to solve the problems with current drawing systems: too many complex commands and unintuitive procedures to satisfy geometric constraints. Interactive beautification system(More)
We propose a process model for hierarchical perceptual sound organization, which recognizes perceptual sounds included in incoming sound signals. We consider perceptual sound organization as a scene analysis problem in the auditory domain. Our model consists of multiple processing modules and a hypothesis network for quantitative integration of multiple(More)
L-glutamate oxidase (LGOX) from Streptomyces sp. X-119-6 is a protein of 150 kDa that has hexamer structure alpha2beta2gamma2. The gene encoding LGOX was cloned and heterologously expressed in Escherichia coli. LGOX isolated from the E. coli transformant had the structure of a one chain polypeptide. Although the recombinant LGOX exhibited catalytic(More)
Sixty strains of thermoacidophilic bacteria have been isolated from soil and water samples obtained from various acidic environments in Japan. An initial comparative sequence analysis of the hypervariable regions of the 16S rDNA revealed that all strains could be assigned to the Alicyclobacillus acidocaldarius–Alicyclobacillus genomic species 1 group, which(More)
We are developing a cooking navigation system, which helps even a novice user to cook several recipes in parallel without failure, while improving an advanced user's skill further. To realize this, the system optimizes the cooking procedure considering the following restrictions: (1) Duration of cooking, (2) Accuracy of cooking, and (3) Learning effect, by(More)
This paper presents an interaction technique for walkthrough in virtual 3D spaces, where the user draws the intended path directly on the scene, and the avatar automatically moves along the path. The system calculates the path by projecting the stroke drawn on the screen to the walking surface in the 3D world. Using this technique, the user can specify not(More)
