Boundary Representation

Boundary representation is basically a catch-all term for 3D shape recognition by the periphery of the shape, not the insides. Wireframes are a classic example of boundary representation, as they map out the shell of the object. Boundary representation may also be called B-rep or BREP.

Sol Bianca: The Legacy Take on Virtual Schooling
A surprising find from an old anime space opera released in 1999. The main plot and most of the episodes have nothing to do with VR, but this well-done representation of how a VR school is created for kids in remote locations - and why it is created this way, is a little gem that is well worth remembering as we strive to create these interfaces for real.

Spatial Representation of a Virtual World
How do you perceive space and spatial relationships between objects in a virtual environment. Rather easily if you are setting out to replicate the physical world. But that is too easy, it loses so many of the true advantages of VR, where space is irrelevant, and every room can be a TARDIS. This article looks at mapping that kind of a mess, beginning with text worlds, where such spatial irrelevancy is at its highest.

Improving Robotic Surgery by integrating Augmented Reality Elements
Robotic surgical procedures are carried out with the aid of a camera system attached alongside the tools on the robotic arm that is inserted into the body of a patient. A surgeon carries out the operation by seeing through the camera's eye. As such, augmented reality systems have always seemed a good fit to overlay a virtual representation of the patient's innards, along with the full size and shape of the target area, on the display screen. However, the difficulty of AR object recognition inside the body has always proven too much of a hurdle. Until now.
