In one example implementation, a method may include receiving an image captured by an image capture device and identifying a foreground object depicted in the image. The foreground object may be free of fiducial markers and may be positioned between the image capture device and a background depicted in the image. The method may also include generating an augmented reality image depicting an augmented reality object at least partially occluded by the foreground object such that, when the augmented reality image is displayed, the augmented reality object appears to be positioned behind the foreground object.



MIXED ENVIRONMENT DISPLAY OF ATTACHED DATA

Thu, 27 Oct 2016 08:00:00 EDT

A holographic user interface may display status information in proximity to relevant components of the computing device, such as a robot, allowing a user to readily associate the status information with the relevant components. Arrangements of the graphical displays may utilize graphical elements to show an association between any displayed data and any component of a computing device. Based on data indicating the size, shape, and configuration of a robot's physical parts, techniques disclosed herein can arrange displayed status data, which may involve a holographic UI, in a relevant context. In addition, techniques disclosed herein allow a user to edit data, or provide an input to one or more computing devices in response to the display of any status data.



VIRTUAL REALITY SPORTS TRAINING SYSTEMS AND METHODS

Thu, 27 Oct 2016 08:00:00 EDT

Virtual and augmented reality sports training environments are disclosed. A user interacts with virtual teammates in a simulated environment of a virtual reality sporting event. As the sporting event unfolds, the user's actions and decisions are monitored by the simulated environment. The sports training environment evaluates the user's performance, and provides quantitative scoring based on the user's decisions and timing. Coaches and other users may design customized scenarios or plays to train and test users, and the resultant scores may be reviewed by the coach. Athletes in a virtual environment may experience an increased number of meaningful play repetitions without the risk of injury. Such environments may maximize effective practice time for users, and help develop better players with improved decision-making skills.



3-Dimensional Portrait Reconstruction From a Single Photo

Thu, 27 Oct 2016 08:00:00 EDT

Systems and methods are disclosed herein for 3-Dimensional portrait reconstruction from a single photo. A face portion of a person depicted in a portrait photo is detected and a 3-Dimensional model of the person depicted in the portrait photo constructed. In one embodiment, constructing the 3-Dimensional model involves fitting hair portions of the portrait photo to one or more helices. In another embodiment, constructing the 3-Dimensional model involves applying positional and normal boundary conditions determined based on one or more relationships between face portion shape and hair portion shape. In yet another embodiment, constructing the 3-Dimensional model involves using shape from shading to capture fine-scale details in a form of surface normals, the shape from shading based on an adaptive albedo model and/or a lighting condition estimated based on shape fitting the face portion.
