Polarized 3D: Extreme-Quality Depth Sensing via Polarization Cues

Coarse depth maps can be enhanced by using the shape informa- tion from polarization cues. We propose a fusion of polarization and depth, a synergistic technique to exploit the high lateral reso- lution and compensate for the low depth resolution of traditional sensors. Although the fusion of depth and photometric normals is not new, existing frameworks cannot handle the unique challenge of fusing normals from polarization. Specific challenges we address include azimuthal ambiguity, refractive distortion, fronto-parallel surfaces, and depth discontinuities. In this project we validate our algorithmic framework for depth enhancement through a low-cost prototype that compares favorably with other depth sensors.

Mirror Mirror: An On-Body Clothing Design System

In this interactive personal-clothing design system, virtual designs are projected on the user’s body and observed in a mirror’s reflection as if the clothes are really “worn” on the body. After fitting, designs are exported, and real garments are fabricated.

A Noise-Based Curriculum for Technological Fluency

This talk describes a curriculum to introduce students to computing and increase their technological fluency through digital art and music projects rather than engineering projects.
