Advanced Topics in Computer Science: Immersive Computer Systems
General Information | Schedule | Projects
| Useful links
This is a project-oriented course to explore the system design and user
interface issues about building immersive video/audio environments.
The rationale for such investigations is that we will be moving into a
new era of computing---ubiquitous visual computing based on enormous visual
information and natural user interactions. In addition to the continuous
rapid improvements in CPU performance, storage density, and network bandwidth,
new generation display devices will become ubiquitous commodities.
These devices will be very inexpensive and they can be used on almost any
kinds of surfaces, allowing unlimited freedom of design for the interiors
and exteriors of rooms and buildings. When this happens, it
will revolutionize the way we use computers, making us rethink the relationship
between information technology and our society.
Students will build system and design tools, and create individual or
team projects that demonstrate ideas on the Display Wall developed at Princeton.
We will also read related research papers and discuss design issues. Graduate
students who do projects in this course will satisfy the programming
requirement. Students can work with the faculty members
and graduate students of the entire Display Wall project. The faculty
members are: Douglas Clark, Perry Cook, Adam Finkelstein, Thomas Funkhouser,
Kai Li, and Ben Shedd.
Both undergradaute and graduate students are welcome to participate.
The first meeting will be in room 302, computer science building, Monday
at 3pm (Feb 1, 1999).
Lectures: M 3:00-5:00pm, Room 302, Computer Science Building
Lab hours: TBD, room 318, Computer Science Building
