Panorama Light-Field Imaging

By converting overlapping sub-light-fields into individual focal stacks, computing a panoramic focal stack from them, and converting the panoramic focal stack back into a panoramic light field, this first approach toward panorama light-field imaging avois the demand for a precise reconstruction of scene depth.

Colloidal Display: A Membrane Screen That Combines Transparency, BRDF, and 3D Volume

An innovative solution that transforms a soap film into the world’s thinnest screen. The screen’s transparency, texture, and shape can be controlled dynamically by using ultrasonic sound waves. Its unique material, which allows objects to pass through, promotes new ways of interaction.
