Mixed Reality Filming WITHOUT a Green Screen | XRobots

Mixed Reality Filming with no Green Screen: This is a proof of concept for making mixed reality films using both the physical and virtual world, but with no physical green screen. I’ve used HTC Vive tracking in this video and a GoPro. The video is a bit shaky which can be improved as suggested in the video. This concept has a lot of possibilities for mixing the physical and virtual worlds in one piece of footage for VR/AR applications.

Neuro-Sensitive Foam Shows Your Expression In VR Before Your Face Does

Launched today, MASK is a foam-based insert that allows VR headset users to show emotion by reproducing their facial expressions through virtual avatars, and in real time (or technically, MindMaze says, slightly ahead of it). According to the company, the product is the first to employ biosignalling methods for translating human facial expressions, rather than the face-facing camera setups explored by Google and others.

A MindMaze employee takes MASK's emotion-capturing tech for a whirl.

Holoportation: virtual 3D teleportation in real-time (Microsoft Research)

Holoportation is a new type of 3D capture technology that allows high quality 3D models of people to be reconstructed, compressed, and transmitted anywhere in the world in real-time. When combined with mixed reality displays such as HoloLens, this technology allows users to see and interact with remote participants in 3D as if they are actually present in their physical space. Communicating and interacting with remote users becomes as natural as face to face communication.

Sending electrical signals to your ear to simulate the sense of motion

Using a safe technique that sends electrical signals to the vestibular system in the ear, Entrim 4D synchronizes the body’s balance system with the changing movements in the VR videos. Users thus feel as if they are a part of the on-screen action, and can even sense direction and speed of movement. “For more information, please see: https://news.samsung.com/global/samsu…
