Section: Application Domains

Virtual and Augmented Reality

This domain has actually seen new devices emerge that enable now full 3D visualization, for instance the HTC Vive, the Microsoft Hololens and the Magic leap one. These devices create a need for adapted animated 3D contents that can either be generated or captured. We believe that captured 4D models will gain interest in this context since they provide realistic visual information on moving shapes that tend to avoid negative perception effects such as the uncanny valley effect. Besides 3D visualization devices, many recent applications also rely on everyday devices, such as mobile phones, to display augmented reality contents with free viewpoint ability. In this case, 3D and 4D contents are also expected.
