Framework

In order to achieve a realistic visual simulation of woodcarvings, we used several texture mapping techniques such as parallax mapping with lighting models, while haptic device is utilized to simulate the sense of touch. To enhance intuitive haptic interaction, we used the Reachin display that integrates a PHANTOM omni haptic device with stereoscopic vision glasses.

  1. Very Interesting I am sorry I missed the presentation .I have many coins with a face struck with a human figures.Few of them seems to be warriors or deities. Many of these are described in Ancient Ceylon by Henry Parker. They all seems to give optical illusions of birds and animal used in the line drawing the die. This is seen on the out line of the human form. May be of interest to you, If so I could send some scans.

  2. i miss that..like to know more..
    its very interesting idea….
    pl tell me how can i catch it…
