Research Themes

~AR, VR and Beyond~

We are interested in human beings, and study on research for augmenting human capabilities and enrich our lives. From this perspective, we mainly conduct studies on sensing, display, and interaction technologies. Please refer to this page for more details about our research philosophy.

In reality, there are many complex research themes that span these three fields. Our research projects can be categorized into display hardware, human augmentation, multi-modal (multi-sensory) interfaces, cognitive and psychological aspects, visualization and media processing.

Display Hardware

Research projects on unprecedented display hardware for AR and VR.

* We have many more projects in this category.

Augmented Human

Research projects on human augmentation to make something possible that were impossible.

* We have many more projects in this category.

Multi-modal Interfaces

Research projects on presenting multi-modal sensations other than vision and auditory such as the sense of taste and the sense of touch and force.

* We have many more projects in this category.

User Interfaces

Research projects on user interfaces that exploit advanced media technologies. Example projects below include those developed by a short-term internship students.

* We have many more projects in this category.

Cognitive and Psychological Aspects

Research projects on cognitive and psychological aspects induced by various stimuli.

* We have many more projects in this category.

Visualization and Media Processing

Research projects on new ways of visualization and processing media.

* We have many more projects in this category.

Sensing

Research projects on sensing humans and the environment. Sensing targets are diverse and include human location, behavior, physiological state, environmental geometry, light source, and many others. In addition to the research that focuses solely on sensing listed below, sensing is widely used in many of the other research projects in other categories.

* We have many more projects in this category.
