  • Spatial Sound Scene Synthesis and Manipulation for Virtual Reality and Audio Effects

    This chapter covers DirAC‐based parametric time‐frequency domain (TF domain) audio techniques where the virtual sound scene is synthesized based on a geometric description of it around the avatar. Time‐frequency domain parametric spatial audio techniques also have applications in audio engineering, in addition to applications in virtual reality. The basic processing block of DirAC‐based spatialization in virtual worlds is the DirAC monosynth. When producing audio for virtual reality, often some recorded speech, music, and/or environmental sounds are used as signals for virtual sources. The chapter presents the application of parametric analysis and synthesis to spatial audio effects, using the DirAC framework. The ambience extraction method attempts to make foreground sounds with a clear direction softer, while preserving background sounds or ambience. Spatialization of a monophonic audio channel, either to a multichannel audio reproduction setup or as background sound in virtual reality, is a useful task in many audio engineering applications.

  • Virtual Reality and Virtual Environments in 10 Lectures

    The book is based on the material originally developed for the course on Virtual Reality, which the author was teaching at Tampere University of Technology, as well as course on Virtual Environments that the author had prepared for the University for Advancing Studies at Tempe, Arizona. This original purpose has influenced the structure of this book as well as the depth to which we explore the presented concepts. Therefore, our intention in this book is to give an introduction into the important issues regarding a series of related concepts of Virtual Reality, Augmented Reality, and Virtual Environments. We do not attempt to go into any of these issues in depth but rather outline general principles and discuss them in a sense broad enough to provide sufficient foundations for a further study. In other words, we aim to provide a set of keywords to the reader in order give him a good starting point from which he could go on and explore any of these issues in detail.

  • Sound in Virtual Reality

    Sound is an integral part of every user experience but a neglected medium in design disciplines. Design of an artifact's sonic qualities is often limited to the shaping of functional, representational, and signaling roles of sound. The interdisciplinary field of sonic interaction design (SID) challenges these prevalent approaches by considering sound as an active medium that can enable novel sensory and social experiences through interactive technologies. This book offers an overview of the emerging SID research, discussing theories, methods, and practices, with a focus on the multisensory aspects of sonic experience. _Sonic Interaction Design_ gathers contributions from scholars, artists, and designers working at the intersections of fields ranging from electronic music to cognitive science. They offer both theoretical considerations of key themes and case studies of products and systems created for such contexts as mobile music, sensorimotor learning, rehabilitation, and ga ing. The goal is not only to extend the existing research and pedagogical approaches to SID but also to foster domains of practice for sound designers, architects, interaction designers, media artists, product designers, and urban planners. Taken together, the chapters provide a foundation for a still- emerging field, affording a new generation of designers a fresh perspective on interactive sound as a situated and multisensory experience. **Contributors:** Federico Avanzini, Gerold Baier, Stephen Barrass, Olivier Bau, Karin Bijsterveld, Roberto Bresin, Stephen Brewster, Jeremy Coopersotck, Amalia De Gotzen, Stefano Delle Monache, Cumhur Erkut, George Essl, Karmen Franinovi¿¿, Bruno L.

  • Combining BCI and Virtual Reality: Scouting Virtual Worlds

    A brain-computer interface (BCI) is a closed-loop system with feedback as one important component. Dependent on the BCI application either to establish communication in patients with severe motor paralysis, to control neuroprosthesis, or to perform neurofeedback, information is visually fed back to the user about success or failure of the intended act. One way to realize feedback is the use of virtual reality (VR). In this chapter, an overview is given of BCI-based control of VR. In addition, four examples are reported in more detail about navigating in virtual environments with a cue-based (synchronous) and an uncued (asynchronous) BCI. Similar results in different virtual worlds with different types of motor imageries could be achieved, but no significant differences in the BCI classification accuracy were observed between VR and non-VR feedback. Nevertheless, the use of VR stimulated the subject's task performances and provided motivation.

  • Virtual Reality and MedicineChallenges for the TwentyFirst Century

    Robert Mann first proposed a virtual reality (VR) system for medical applications in 1965. His initial ideas were for a rehabilitation application for virtual reality. Later, his vision was to develop a system that would allow surgeons to test out multiple operations for a given orthopedic problem. Then in a virtual environment (VE), the clock could be speeded up to predict the future outcome of different surgical approaches. In effect, the patient could leave the operating table, go through rehabilitation, and then return for evaluation. The surgeon could then pick the best choice for the real operation. This approach would need a model that was not only patient specific but also accurate in terms of the deformity and its response to treatment over time. This is the ultimate goal for the twenty-first century for a VR system in surgery. It is difficult to create a model of the human body that is realistic enough to accurately portray a surgical mission that is planned. The interface tools that are presently available are much more advanced than the ones discussed here that were available to NASA in the 1980s; however, without a true model to interact with they are unable to provide the realism for surgical education and training that is needed. Present cadaver laboratories and training through hands-on experience provide the majority of medical education today in surgery. It is unlikely that present VR simulators will change this without a significant improvements in the models. Most of the author's work has been directed at creating digital models of humans. Some of this work is reviewed and what needs to be done is emphasized, rather than focus on what has already been accomplished. Systems are presently available for many medical training applications, including microsurgery, urology, general surgery, heart surgery, vascular sur gery, eye surgery, otolaryngology, military wound d?bridement, and obstetrics. Ultimately these systems will be able to provide teaching at a distance for telemedicine and telesurgery. The goal of this chapter is to better define where is needed to make improvements in the human body models for all of these systems. Most of these systems assume normal tissue properties and do not address the response over time of the tissues to the disease state, to the surgical intervention, or to the healing process. The pathologic state of tissues and the tissue's response to interventions over time should be the next grand challenge in virtual reality and medicine.

  • Virtual Reality and Its Integration into a Twenty-First Century Telemedical Information Society

    This chapter discusses the foundational building blocks approach in creating a Telemedical Information Society. It can be seen that advanced imaging techniques such as virtual reality can be easily integrated. The pragmatics of defining and creating virtual environments are abstracted from the practitioner. A practitioner then has the choice, depending on the supportive hardware, on how to visualize the patient data. This chapter does not concentrate on specifics or detail use explanations. It outlines a framework for how advanced imaging techniques could be integrated into a general Telemedical Information Society. If costs are reduced, the technology will become more widespread. This chapter discusses the elements of a Telemedical Information Society. Virtual reality for education and training, for diagnostics purposes, and the future for VR are presented.

  • Virtual Reality for Health Care

    The basis for the virtual reality (VR) idea is that a computer can synthesise a three-dimensional (3-D) graphical environment from numerical data. Using visual and auditory output devices, the human operator can experience the environment as if it were a part of the world. This computer-generated world may be either a model of a real-world object, such as a house; or an abstract world that does not exist in a real sense but is understood by humans, such as a chemical molecule or a representation of a set of data; or it might be in a completely imaginary science fiction world. Furthermore, because input devices sense the operator's reactions and motions, the operator can modify the synthetic environment, creating the illusion of interacting with and thus being immersed within the environment. The following topics are covered here: VR and telepresence; Definitions; Technology overview; Market analysis; Virtual reality in health care; and Telemedicine.

  • Anatomic VisualizeR: Teaching and Learning Anatomy with Virtual Reality

    The University of California San Diego (UCSD) School of Medicine's Learning Resources Center (LRC) has been actively engaged in the development and implementation of a virtual reality (VR) based application for education and training. The resultant product, _VisualizeR_, is a virtual environment (VE) designed to support the teaching and learning of any subject that requires an understanding of three-dimensional (3-D) structures and complex spatial relationships. _VisualizeR_'s multimodal application interface approach, named virtual reality-multimedia synthesis (VR-MMS), enables interaction with 3-D models and concurrent access to multimedia resources, including text, images, animations, video, and sound. Moreover, the flexible and extensible _VisualizeR_ architecture accommodates the needs of a wide variety of different teaching approaches and provides the capability for dynamic and unstructured student exploration. The scientific domain selected for UCSD's first _VisualizeR_ lessons was human anatomy, because it represented one context in which a VR-MMS-based strategy was both achievable and apropos. While still considered the gold standard against which alternatives are judged, current educational methods?-? a combination of lectures and laboratory dissections?-? fall short of instilling the requisite 3-D conceptualization, retention, and application of anatomic knowledge to clinical-problem solving. These pedagogical challenges are further complicated by shortened anatomy curricula owing to competition from other courses; the desirability of less dependence on human cadavers because of scarcity, costs, aesthetics, and environmental concerns; and reductions in hours and resources (including faculty) available for wet laboratory coursework. At the same time, many curricula are including greater amounts of anat omic information, including conceptually challenging 3-D relationships, a need that could be well met by VR-based anatomy resources.
