We present a data-driven shape model for reconstructing human body models from one or more 2D photos. One of the key tasks in reconstructing the 3D model from image data is shape recovery, a task done until now in utterly geometric way, in the domain of human body modeling. In contrast, we adopt a data-driven, parameterized deformable model that is acquired(More)
We propose a new interaction technique, called PseudoButton, which emulates a pressure-sensitive touch sensor by repurposing a built-in microphone on mobile devices. This simple and novel technique increases input expressivity of the device and expands its interaction area for users to alleviate the occlusion problem caused by touchscreens without adding(More)
It is difficult to navigate virtual environment as in real world and to interact with other participant in virtual environment, especially wearing Head-Mounted Display (HMD). We developed Virtual Office Environment System (VOES), and avatar is used to navigate and to interact with other participants. For easy and intuitive control of avatar motion in the(More)
Scenes with crowds of dressed virtual humans are getting more attention and importance in 3D games and virtual reality applications. Crowd scenes, which include huge amounts of virtual humans, require complex computation for animation and rendering. In this research, new methods are proposed to generate efficient virtual human models by unifying a body and(More)
This paper proposes a new implicit integration technique that reproduces a stable cloth without introducing excessive damping forces. Semi-implicit integration methods have been widely used in cloth simulations because of their high stability and speed. Artificial internal damping forces are generated during the linearization process of the semi-implicit(More)
