3D Multi-Touch Master Thesis

Due to the overwhelming response from the research community over the past 2 years I decided to put online my Master Thesis written at Fraunhofer FIT. I hope my experience will help at least a few researchers and enthusiasts to move forward with their approaches and technologies. Overall, this is my contribution to improving human-computer interaction towards a more ergonomic, inuitive and fun experience.

Official 3D Multi-Touch Websites

Recently, two websites went online about the 3D multi-touch prototype that I developed during my Master thesis at Fraunhofer FIT. They serve as the public hub for getting information about the technology, the project, and the people behind it. This step is intended to foster collaboration and intensify exchange with the community.

3D Multi-Touch with Computer Vision

Some time ago I was working on free hand 3D gesture interfaces similar to Microsoft Kinect. What this work essentially means is collecting digital camera images and constructing logic that is able to recognize hands and interpret their movement. For constructing the logic it helps to build comprehensive visualizations of the camera data and information that you calculate from it. In this article I show some visualizations that I used during my work.

Fraunhofer Prize Award 2011

After finishing graduate classes at RWTH Aachen University I decided to go to Fraunhofer FIT, a non-profit R&D organization at the interface between science and industry, to work on my Master thesis in the area of computer vision, human computer interaction, and gesture recognition. This year my thesis was awarded the Hugo Geiger Prize at the Fraunhofer Prize Award 2011 in Nuernberg, Germany.

Research Group Seminar Winter 2011

Beginning of this week the research group I currently work at was going onto a two day seminar trip onto the country side south of Munich. Since we are a very large group the event was intended to present current progress in the individual domains and foster communication and exchange between the people. All in all it was a very interesting experience.

IEEE VR 2011 in Singapore

Last week I went to Singapore to present the results of my Master thesis at IEEE VR 2011, one of the world's most prestigeous virtual reality conferences. It was a great week and I wanted to share some impressions both professional and personal with you!

3D Multi-Touch Product Vision

As you might know I was developing a prototype for 3D multi-touch interaction during my Master thesis at Fraunhofer FIT. Lately I had the chance to talk with a friend, Osca, about ways to build useful products around this brand new technology. What we came up with is a pencil sketch of the user interacting with a digital drawing table.

Master Thesis Video.

After finally completing my Master Thesis project at Fraunhofer FIT me and some friends took some time to prepare a demonstration video. The video is now available on YouTube for everybody to watch and comment. I really hope you guys enjoy it since we put quite some effort into it.

Algorithm Debugging using OpenGL.

Currently, I am working on my thesis in the area of Computer Vision. The algorithms are quite complex and difficult to debug. Therefore, I implemented a simple architecture for creating a debug environment in 3D using OpenGL. The system can be extended using custom debugger implementations which render into a grid structure.

Augmented Reality Framework Screenshot.

Last year I started developing an augmented reality framework with a friend of mine from electrical engineering science. We succeeded in providing a QT user interface and connecting to a webcam using the Video 4 Linux API.
