Catching a Real Ball in Virtual Reality

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Qxu_y8ABajQ

We present a system enabling users to accurately catch a real ball while immersed in a virtual reality environment. We examine three visualizations: rendering a matching virtual ball, the predicted trajectory of the ball, and a target catching point lying on the predicted trajectory.

 In our demonstration system, we track the projectile motion of a ball as it is being tossed between users. Using Unscented Kalman Filtering, we generate predictive estimates of the ball’s motion as it approaches the catcher. The predictive assistance visualizations effectively increases the user’s senses but can also alter the user’s strategy in catching.

LIFE VR | HOME: A UN VR Film

https://vimeo.com/207306925

In 2016, United Nations Secretary-General Ban Ki-moon traveled to more than ten countries in five months to draw global attention to the urgent needs of some 130 million people severely impacted by armed conflicts and natural disasters. A VR crew was granted unprecedented access to capture the journey.

Released in Mr. Ban's final weeks in office after a ten-year term, "Home" offers viewers a rare behind-the-scenes look at Ban's visits to these communities. A triumphant story of loss, recovery, and spreading hope, the VR film features an original song by the Black Eyed Peas.

MaxiGolf – Earliest, Roughest, Jankiest Prototype

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=mYxeRXQzBQ8&feature=youtu.be

A virtualiterally cobbled together scene of styled photograms of statues and environments I made from around the greater Portland, Oregon area. I knock around a few golf balls in a literally primitive game of Virtual Reality golf. then I teleport around the scene, from golf ball to golf ball, checking out the statues in greater detail. Finally, I just end up tossing my golf club in the air and catching it a few times. As you can see, physics and the teleportation system are still a little broken, but nevertheless, it's pretty, fun, and relaxing.
