Over the past years, the interaction between humans and computers (HCI) evolved to one of the most important research topics in computer science. Therefore , finding aw ay for an intuitive,e asy and affordable interaction is the main challenge. Optical markerless tracking using consumer hardware can satisfy these problems. However, in order to be able to… (More)
Large Displays and visualizations on such display systems are becoming more and more popular. In order to interact with those systems new devices and interaction techniques must be developed in order to fit the specific needs. In this paper, an overview of the common state of the art devices and techniques will be presented and the pro and cons discussed.
We provide computer-animated characters with haptic interaction, allowing human users to interfere with cogni-tive characters. Our work presents an interface between control and animation of virtual characters (CONTACT) and HapTEK, a framework for haptic interaction of a human hand with virtual reality (VR). This way, human-computer interaction becomes… (More)
Nowadays, biologists investigate different causes for deafness. One reason is a damage in a particular region of the auditory brain stem. These differences were discovered by investigating brain slices of different laboratory mice. However, these slices are only a two dimensional representation of the whole brain part. The arising question was how these… (More)

Anatomical differences were discovered when investigating brain slices of different laboratory mice. However, these slices are only atwo dimensional representation of apart of the brain.
