This paper presents a method for three-dimensional surface ¯attening, which can be ef®ciently used in three-dimensional computer aided garment design. First, a facet model is used to present a complex surface. Then, a spring±mass model based on energy function is used to ¯atten the 3D mesh surfaces into 2D patterns. The surface elastic deformation energy(More)
Virtual reality (VR) has been used both to simulate situations that are too dangerous to practice in real life and as a tool to help children learn. This study was conducted as part of a larger more comprehensive long-term research project which aims to combine the two techniques and demonstrate a novel application of the result, using immersive VR to help(More)
This study presents a 3D virtual reality (VR) keyboard system with realistic haptic feedback. The system uses two five-fingered data gloves to track finger positions and postures, uses micro-speakers to create simulated vibrations, and uses a head-mounted display (HMD) for 3D display. When users press a virtual key in the VR environment, the system can(More)
