Best Poster Runner Up Award at IEEE ISMAR 2012

Monday, 12 November 2012

We won the Best Poster Runner Up Award at the IEEE International Symposium on Mixed and Augmented Reality (ISMAR) for our submission "ClonAR: Rapid Redesign of Real-World Objects". ISMAR is the premier conference in its field and took place in Atlanta, USA.

ClonAR enables users to rapidly clone and edit real-world objects. First, real-world objects can be scanned using KinectFusion. Second, users can edit the scanned objects in our visuo-haptic Augmented Reality environment. Finally, users can print the edited models using a 3D printer.

We were also nominated for Best Paper Award for our submission "Tablet versus Phone: Depth Perception in Handheld Augmented Reality". In this paper, we present an array of experiments that compares user performance with an iPad 3 and with an iPhone 4S. Due to the recent uptake of handheld Augmented Reality applications, a topic of great practical relevance.
