Augmented Reflection of Reality

Los Angeles Convention Center, Concourse Foyer

Unlike existing augmented-reality techniques, which typically augment the real world surrounding a user with virtual objects and visualize those effects using various see-through displays, this system focuses on augmenting the user's full body. A half-silvered mirror combines the user's reflection with synthetic data to provide a mixed world. With a live and direct view of the user and the surrounding environment, the system allows the user to intuitively control virtual objects (for example, virtual drums) via the augmented reflection.
