We propose a multimodal digital archiving and reproduction of the world cultural heritage "Gion Festival in Kyoto". In this digital museum project, we make "Virtual Kyoto" more highly-developed and detailed, and develop the system where users can experience the things and events related to Gion Festival with several virtual reality technologies.(More)
In the field of digital archive, high-definition measurement, modeling and rendering of the cultural properties are very important problems. However, it is not allowed to touch valued cultural properties in general and it is impossible to measure parameter of these cultural properties by contact measuring method. Therefore, we model a surface asperity of(More)
We archived large 3D woven cultural artifacts of the "Fune-hoko" based on the image-based technique. After the Gion Festival of 2011, the repair work of the Fune-hoko storage was scheduled. Therefore, we developed a 3D scanning system for the large 3D woven cultural artifacts measurement with the laser range scanner and tried to scan and model the 3D woven(More)
We propose a realtime and direct-touch interaction system for 3D woven cultural artifact exhibition. Our system enables to exhibit the cultural artifact at high-definition and enables realtime and direct-touch interaction based on our texture-based haptic modeling and rendering techniques. In our techniques, the reaction force is changed according to the(More)
