We developed Layered Touch Panel that expands the interaction techniques of touch panel. Layer Touch Panel has two touch panel layers, so that it is able to distinguish two touch states such as "finger on screen" and "finger above screen". With the structure, Rollover effect and Pick & Drop that are not available in normal touch panel are available in(More)
A novel method for an all-around display system that shows three-dimensional stereo images without the need for special goggles has been developed. This system simply needs a directional-reflection screen, mirrors, and a standard projector. The basic concept behind this system is to make use of the phenomenon called "afterimage" that occurs when screen is(More)
Three-dimensional displays are drawing attention as next-generation devices. Some techniques which can reproduce three-dimensional images prepared in advance have already been developed. However, technology for the transmission of 3D moving pictures in real-time is yet to be achieved. In this paper, we present a novel method for 360-degrees viewable 3D(More)
Existing commercial finite element analysis (FEA) codes do not exhibit the performance necessary for large scale analysis on parallel computer systems. In this paper, we demonstrate the performance characteristics of a commercial parallel structural analysis code, ADVC, on Blue Gene/L (BG/L). The numerical algorithm of ADVC is described, tuned, and(More)
Protein crystals are fragile, and it is sometimes difficult to find conditions suitable for handling and cryocooling the crystals before conducting X-ray diffraction experiments. To overcome this issue, a protein crystal-mounting method has been developed that involves a water-soluble polymer and controlled humid air that can adjust the moisture content of(More)
OBJECTIVE A 3-dimensional alginate bead culturing method using rabbit articular chondrocytes was studied for the screening of the effectiveness of drugs for articular diseases. DESIGN The beads cultured with IL-1β, TGF-β, and Hyaluronan (HA) were evaluated histochemically with Alecian blue and immunohistochemically with CS-56 antibody. Chondrocytes in(More)
