Title: 3D User Interface Techniques for Interactive Content
Good media content has the power to enrich our lives. The effectiveness of content delivery is becoming more and more important in a wide variety of fields, such as industry, education, culture, entertainment, and so on. Expectations of its use in the general public are also increasing. We focus on non-traditional contents other than movies, music and games, conducting comprehensive research on a variety of interactive content which creates new value through interactions with humans. In this talk I will introduce some of the recent and ongoing projects on 3D user interface techniques for designing future interactive content.
