This paper presents a novel interaction system, PUB (Point Upon Body), to explore eyes-free interaction in a personal space by allowing users tapping on their own arms to be provided with haptic feedback from their skin. Two user studies determine how users can interact precisely with their forearms and how users behave when operating in their arm space.(More)
In this paper, a new smooth slideshow transition effect, Sewing Photos, is proposed while considering both of smooth content transition and smooth camera motion. Comparing to the traditional photo browsing and displaying work, which all focused on presenting splendid visual effects, Sewing Photos emphasizes on the smooth transition process between photos(More)
This paper proposes a line segment method to estimate the depth information from a pair of rectified images. The proposed method can achieve real-time and high quality stereo-matching. We first use a simple edge detection to find out the line segments in the reference image and then calculate the color difference of each line segment from a pair of(More)
Five Aphelenchoides besseyi isolates collected from bird's-nest ferns or rice possess different parasitic capacities in bird's-nest fern. Two different glycoside hydrolase (GH) 45 genes were identified in the fern isolates, and only one was found in the rice isolates. A Abe GH5-1 gene containing an SCP-like family domain was found only in the fern isolates.(More)
Hearing is one of human's five senses. In our daily life, we usually guess where we are and the surrounding conditions not only by the visual feedbacks of the surrounded scene, but also by environmental sounds. For example, subway stations usually hint people the door closing by an urgent sound. In Taiwan, the garbage trucks usually broadcast one special(More)
Information about the interface sites of Protein-Protein Interactions (PPIs) is useful for many biological research works. However, despite the advancement of experimental techniques, the identification of PPI sites still remains as a challenging task. Using a statistical learning technique, we proposed a computational tool for predicting PPI interaction(More)
This work designs a novel prototype system, Social Album, by utilizing social relationship data to link and merge online albums of individuals together. Field study results indicate that “co-event” albums related to more than one participating individual are the majority of online albums. Two different views are designed based on feedbacks(More)
