The Tele-immersive Dance Environment (TED) is a geographically distributed, real-time 3-D virtual room where multiple participants interact independent of physical distance. TED, a highly interactive collaborative environment, offers digital options with multiple viewpoints, enhancing the creative movement composition involved with dance choreography. A(More)
As an emerging technology, 3D video has shown a great potential to become the next generation media for tele-immersion. However, streaming and rendering this dynamic 3D data in real-time requires tremendous network bandwidth and computing resources. In this paper, we build a remote rendering model to better study different remote rendering designs and(More)
Immune activation and inflammation play critical roles in the development of heart failure (HF). Human leukocyte antigen-G (HLA-G) is a nonclassical, major histocompatibility complex class I (MHC-I) protein, upregulated in the context of transplantation, malignancy, and inflammation, and has been correlated with various clinical outcomes. We sought to(More)
We present MethMorph, a system for producing realistic simulations of how drug-free people would look if they used metham-phetamine. Significant weight loss and facial lesions are common side effects of meth usage. MethMorph fully automates the process of thinning the face and applying lesions to healthy faces. We combine several recently-developed(More)
Panoramic images capture cityscapes of dense urban structures by mapping multiple images from different viewpoints into a single composite image. One challenge to their construction is that objects that lie at di fferent depth are often not stitched correctly in the panorama. The problem is especially troublesome for objects occupying large horizontal(More)

In this demonstration, we present WiiView, a view control interface for 3D tele-immersive (3DTI) environments. This interface allows the user to intuitively manipulate the virtual camera and graphical objects in a 3D tele-immersive virtual space, thus significantly enhancing the viewing experience for users in 3DTI collaboration. We have used WiiView in a(More)
This paper aims to examine the effect of cellulose nanocrystals (CNC) on the hydration, transport behavior, and microstructure of cement mixtures. The addition of CNC delayed hydration at an early age but improved hydration at later ages. A small increase in the electrical resistivity of the cement mixtures with CNC was observed.
