Nexight (Final Design)

with 2 comments

I created a page that explains the final design of this projects. There you can find all the final videos and explanations in one place. I called the system I’ve designed Nexight:

Nexight (Final Design, descriptions, resources, links and videos)

There is also the final animation of the user interface (you should check out the HighDefinition version to see all details of the interface)

Thesis Presentation Video

leave a comment »

As promised here is the video of my Thesis Presentation at Umea Institute of Design. It’s about 45 minutes – I am explaining the whole scope of this project: research, ideation, animations, demonstration of the prototype – enjoy the show!

sound is a bit low, you might have to turn up your volume.

3D tracking prototype #3

with 2 comments

Last night, 3 days before the final presentation, I have reached a state in my prototype that I am really happy with. The tracking stability is even better than expected with the new LED pen. Also I added a basic graphical user interface and some cool features. But look yourself, I am explaining it in this 5 minute video:

Touch Concept Video Raw

leave a comment »

Here is the first raw version of the full Touchscreen Concept for this project. I rendered it yesterday night, and there is still some quirks, missing screens and no explanation at all. But it was really important for myself to see the whole thing together. It made me realize that there are still small problems and inconsistencies in the interface. Not sure if I am going to be able to change everything, because there is only little time left. Still I think it conveys the concept and idea very well, and that’s the most important.

its pretty hard to see the details of the interface in the low resolution version here on the web. I guess I have to make an extra web-version in the end. also Vimeo somehow stretched the video image. (…a lot of things to fix)

Medical Augmented Reality

leave a comment »

While collecting the links for my “Printing Human Tissue” post I stumbled upon a blogpost about Augmented Reality for Medicine at MedGadget. I realised that I never explicitly looked for AR in medicine. So here are some interesting links and videos I’ve found:

Developing a New Medical Augmented Reality System (from 1996)

Computer Aided Medical Procedures & Augmented Reality (TU Munich)

UNC Ultrasound/Medical Augmented Reality Research (from 2000)

3 more videos after the link:

First explorations in multitouch

leave a comment »

I took my paper-multitouch-sketches and transfered them into a video-sketch today. It’s still a rough concept and not all my ides work out so well, but while editing the video I already got a ton of new ideas how to change and improve the multitouch-concept. Also before the video I was thinking about adding some graphical user interface (GUI), but now I really like the simplicity of the visuals and I think it is really important for the radiologist not to get distracted by the GUI. That could be the real advantage in a touch interface for the radiologist.

physical cube to view/manipulate a 3D model – v0.2

leave a comment »

In my last meeting with my mentor Mine we discussed the idea of the physical-cube-interface. Mine had a good point by mentioning the difference between looking at a 3D model on your own to the situation in a video conference. I think the augmented reality approach (in which you see the actual video stream with your own hands and the cube, augmented with the digital 3D model) is great for discussing a case online in a video conference, but doesn’t make much sense while analyzing a case on your own. If you are on your own, you don’t really need to see your own hands on the screen.

So I think there should be 2 concepts – one for working alone and another one for discussing and showing a case online.

In the second version of my physical-cube-interface prototype you can not see the video stream. I tried to make the tracking more stable and also implemented some of my initial ideas for viewing actual radiology data. This is still a very early prototype but I have the feeling that I am on the right track here. While playing around with the prototype I become more familiar with the advantages and problems. It already feels really natural to view a 3D model. But I think the other ideas I’ve implemented (pressure sensor, move cube left/right to change transparency) need some more consideration. At this stage there is too much things happening at the same time.
