Short Abstract

Submitted by asadzak on

We propose to create and test a natural interaction interface for manipulating objects based upon a Kinect camera driving a Unity3D application that allows to explore a virtual space, select virtual objects and manipulate them. The content of the testbed consists of the reconstruction of an early Christian basilica from Cim, BH, of which some findings are shown in the Museum of Herzegovina in Mostar, BH.

The testbed allows to explore the outside and the inside of the virtually reconstructed basilica, and to manipulate objects that are present in this virtual world. The quality of the manipulation of the objects is tested by specific activities (for example, picking up a key and using it to unlock the door of the basilica to enter) which also trigger storytelling.

Planning testbed :

  • Study of basilica based upon archaeology and publications – ETF – Dec 2012
  • 3D digitisation of interior elements of the basilica – ETF – Dec 2012
  • proposals for digital restoration of interior – ETF – Jan 2013
  • detailed 3D models of basilica based upon archaeology and studies – ETF – Jan 2013
  • 3D models of interior objects - photogrammetry – ETF – Jan 2013
  • digital restoration of interior objects – VisDim – Feb-Mar 2013
  • terrain and vegetation – VisDim – Mar 2013
  • storytelling for natural interaction – VisDim – Feb-Mar 2013
  • programming the real-time system - CNR-ITABC – Jan-April 2013
  • testing – ETF – April-May 2013
