Pain is a protective perceptual response shaped by contextual, psychological, and sensory inputs that suggest danger to the body. Sensory cues suggesting that a body part is moving toward a painful position may credibly signal the threat and thereby modulate pain. In this experiment, we used virtual reality to investigate whether manipulating visual(More)
Effective designs rarely emerge from good structural design or aesthetics alone. It is more often the result of the end product's overall design integrity. Added to this, design is inherently an interdisciplinary collaborative activity. With this in mind, today's tools are not powerful enough to design complex physical environments, such as command control(More)
The physical spaces within which the work of health occurs - the home, the intensive care unit, the emergency room, even the bedroom - influence the manner in which behaviors unfold, and may contribute to efficacy and effectiveness of health interventions. Yet the study of such complex workspaces is difficult. Health care environments are complex, chaotic(More)
BACKGROUND Proprioceptive imprecision is believed to contribute to persistent pain. Detecting imprecision in order to study or treat it remains challenging given the limitations of current tests. OBJECTIVES The aim of this study was to determine whether proprioceptive imprecision could be detected in people with neck pain by testing their ability to(More)
Spatial Augmented Reality allows the appearance of physical objects to be transformed using projected light. Computer controlled light projection systems have become readily available and cost effective for both commercial and personal use. This chapter explores how large Spatial Augmented Reality systems can be applied to enhanced design mock-ups. Unlike(More)
This document introduces a new application for rendering massive LiDAR point cloud data sets of interior environments within highresolution immersive VR display systems. Overall contributions are: to create an application which is able to visualize large-scale point clouds at interactive rates in immersive display environments, to develop a flexible(More)
This poster presents the concept of combining two display technologies to enhance graphics effects in spatial augmented reality (SAR) environments. This is achieved by using an ePaper surface as an adaptive substrate instead of a white painted surface allowing the development of novel image techniques to improve image quality and object appearance in(More)
Previous approaches to rendering large point clouds on immersive displays have generally created a trade-off between interactivity and quality. While these approaches have been quite successful for desktop environments when interaction is limited, virtual reality systems are continuously interactive, which forces users to suffer through either low frame(More)
