Watch Microsoft demoing Story Remix at Build 2017, a new app that allows you to create videos from photos and videos, just like Windows Movie Maker. Story Remix also uses AI and deep learning to find and create videos automatically, which you can keep or edit.
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.
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.
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.
A functional prototype showing how it feel would if HoloLenses could participate in virtual reality sessions within the same space.
The HTC tracking system can used for real time projection mapping onto moving surfaces. Using some rubber bands and a calibrated projector, the controller allows physical interaction with projected surfaces. This experiment was made in a weekend by two artists.
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…”
