Digital Fabrication
Found in: Computer
By Manfred Lau,Jun Mitani,Takeo Igarashi
Issue Date:December 2012
pp. 76-79
For the first time in history, laypeople can participate in the product design and manufacturing process by directly interacting with the underlying hardware and software.
 
Face poser: Interactive modeling of 3D facial expressions using facial priors
Found in: ACM Transactions on Graphics (TOG)
By Heung-Yeung Shum, Jinxiang Chai, Jinxiang Chai, Manfred Lau, Manfred Lau, Ying-Qing Xu, Ying-Qing Xu
Issue Date:December 2009
pp. 1-17
This article presents an intuitive and easy-to-use system for interactively posing 3D facial expressions. The user can model and edit facial expressions by drawing freeform strokes, by specifying distances between facial points, by incrementally editing cu...
     
Modeling spatial and temporal variation in motion data
Found in: ACM Transactions on Graphics (TOG)
By James Kuffner, Manfred Lau, Ziv Bar-Joseph, James Kuffner, Manfred Lau, Ziv Bar-Joseph
Issue Date:December 2009
pp. 1-2
We present a novel method to model and synthesize variation in motion data. Given a few examples of a particular type of motion as input, we learn a generative model that is able to synthesize a family of spatial and temporal variants that are statisticall...
     
Workshop on personal and pervasive fabrication (PerFab 2013)
Found in: Proceedings of the 2013 ACM conference on Pervasive and ubiquitous computing adjunct publication (UbiComp '13 Adjunct)
By Christian Weichel, Manfred Lau, Nicolas Villar
Issue Date:September 2013
pp. 939-944
Recently, technologies for fabricating real-world objects and products that can be designed and built directly by the end-user have decreased in costs and are increasingly common. These technologies are expected to have a great impact on society and the pe...
     
Sixth sense transport: challenges in supporting flexible time travel
Found in: Proceedings of the Twelfth Workshop on Mobile Computing Systems & Applications (HotMobile '12)
By Chris Speed, Janet Dickinson, Manfred Lau, Tom Cherrett, Nigel Davies, Sarah Norgate
Issue Date:February 2012
pp. 1-6
In this paper, we consider the challenges associated with providing a mobile computing system that helps users enjoy a more flexible relationship between time and travel. Current travel plans, especially in Western cultures, are dominated by a strict notio...
     
Situated modeling: a shape-stamping interface with tangible primitives
Found in: Proceedings of the Sixth International Conference on Tangible, Embedded and Embodied Interaction (TEI '12)
By Jun Mitani, Masaki Hirose, Akira Ohgawara, Manfred Lau, Takeo Igarashi
Issue Date:February 2012
pp. 275-282
Existing 3D sketching methods typically allow the user to draw in empty space which is imprecise and lacks tactile feedback. We introduce a shape-stamping interface where users can model with tangible 3D primitive shapes. Each of these shapes represents a ...
     
Converting 3D furniture models to fabricatable parts and connectors
Found in: ACM SIGGRAPH 2011 papers (SIGGRAPH '11)
By Akira Ohgawara, Jun Mitani, Manfred Lau, Takeo Igarashi
Issue Date:August 2011
pp. 287-294
Although there is an abundance of 3D models available, most of them exist only in virtual simulation and are not immediately usable as physical objects in the real world. We solve the problem of taking as input a 3D model of a man-made object, and automati...
