Title: Stuff-Haptics: A System to automatically generate Passive Haptics Experiences in arbitrary environments.
Location: Room G34, Owheo Building
Time & Date: 1pm, Friday 12, June
Current Passive Haptics experiences only run with a premeditated set of physical props, preventing such experiences from running anywhere else. Stuff-Haptics is a software system that allows Passive Haptics experiences to run on different sets of props, such as physical objects found in the home. Using a generic format the system considers the story of the experience and allows the experience to run in a wide range of locations by procedurally modelling virtual object sets to match the available props.
