We are trying to better understand the dreams of people with traumatic childhood experiences. This research was approved by the Ethics Committee of the City University of Hong Kong. We are recruiting participants for this study now. Complete a quick, 10-15 minute anonymous screening survey and upload some of your dream reports to see if… Continue reading A study of the dreams of people with traumatic childhood experiences
Augmented Materiality Lab PhD researchers Royce Ng and Daniel Eckhoff and research assistant Mengyao Zhu are currently developing novel virtual and augmented reality systems for use in palliative care in collaboration with the clinical psychologist Olive Woo. Some findings from this research will be published in the Frontiers in Virtual Reality research topic ‘Mixed Reality… Continue reading Mixed Reality for Palliative Care
3D modelling and printing are becoming increasingly popular. However, beginners often face high barriers of entry when trying to use existing 3D modelling tools, even for creating simple objects. This is further complicated on mobile devices by the lack of direct manipulation in the Z dimension. In this paper, we explore the possibility of using… Continue reading 3D Modelling on Foldable Touchscreens
Two lines of “shy” security cameras greet the public as they walk a red carpet. These motorized cameras ressemble security cameras or avid reporters looking for a good shot; however, the moment the camera recognizes a face, it hastily looks away, ashamed of its intrusive attitude and avoiding eye contact.
2014-2021. Humans (and a mischievous animated stone) introduce the necessary element of Chaos, while Order is maintained by three slightly opinionated robotic lanterns: the Toro-bots.
2022~. We propose a scalable strategy readily applicable to video-online teaching scenarios , bringing back some of the advantages found in a one-on-one personal teaching experience.
2020. The Context-Based 3D Haptic Grid extends the visual and haptic feedback of the real-world to help users do precise mid-air 3D manipulations.
This research aims to contribute to the development of PTSD treatment by investigating the potential of Augmented Reality (AR) narrative in treating PTSD.
“Spiritual World” is an interactive immersive projection trying to build an inner world to show the self-reflection process of participants visually and show the relationship between participants. Experiencing the “Spiritual World” is like entering other people’s inner world or let other people get into your inner world. The interaction between participants will be visually displayed… Continue reading Interactive Immersive Projection
The research based art work ‘What is it like to be a virtual bat?’ is the second in a series of multispecies, sensory ethnographies around the ecosystems of Lantau Island, Hong Kong, and is an attempt to acknowledge the limitations of human sensory capacities and how technology can be used to ‘mediate’ these constraints and embody more-than-human experiences.
The research based artwork Bubalus bubalis /16HZ-40,000HZ is the first of a series of works which adopts a ‘creaturely perspective’ that at once elevate more sensual, elemental and cosmopolitical understandings of multispecies perspectives, while documenting a mode of human animal-nonhuman animal sociality in this unique post-domestic context of Hong Kong.
[collaboration with the ESPCI – Ecole Superieure de Physique Chimie de Paris] We present a counterintuitive method to create a time-reversed wave by applying a time-controlled dissipation pulse. By successive application of this principle, we can destroy a monochromatic component of a broad band wave to make an “in situ” spectral hole burning. We demonstrate… Continue reading Damping-Driven Time Reversal for Waves
2019. Incredible as it may be, and despite the widespread recognition of Leonardo Da Vinci as the “father” of aerodynamics, nobody seems to have studied the aerodynamic efficiency of one of his more iconic designs: the aerial screw. I modelled the screw, and simulated Leonardo Da Vinci contraption using modern computational fluid dynamics (CFD, SimScale).
2019. We are at a loss when words or pictures refuse to reveal their immediate purpose. Yet despite its graphical profusion, Leonardo Da Vinci’s Codex is very lucid in this respect: every page offers immediate enjoyment, regardless of a professional grasp of the subject matter.
