Continuing on the theme of glass-less 3D displays mentioned a few days ago, The Register reports that Apple has patented a 3D display system that requires neither special glasses or ‘parallax’ screens that enables “inexpensive auto-stereoscopic 3D displays that allow the observer complete and unencumbered freedom of movement.” The system’s concept revolves around the use […]
I am a Senior Lecturer in the Department of Computer Science, Faculty of Science and Engineering of the University of Chester, UK, since June 2015. My research expertise is on Wearable Computing, Mixed Reality and Virtual Reality, complemented by experience in Information Visualization, Haptics and Usability Evaluation.
I am currently interested in various themes of human-computer interaction, and in particular the application of novel display technologies in visualization.
Previously, I was a lecturer and researcher at the School of Computer Science, Bangor University, UK, a member of the Visualisation and Medical Graphics (VMG) group and an associate of the Research Institute of Visual Computing (RIVIC).

Technology Review has a nice post on the current state of the mobile phones industry, with emphasis on the social implications. You can find it here. While reading it I was thinking of the time when mobile phones were not as smart as today, PDAs were much simpler than the cheapest phones of the last […]
IEEE Spectrum has a very interesting article on HMD/Glass-less 3D systems on its December 2010 issue. You can read it here. The article presents past and recent efforts on creating 3D displays without using spectacle-type displays, discussing various techniques. We find the possibility of having 3D displays without the whole – arguably obtrusive – arrangement […]
Probably the most impressive examples of AR I have seen in a while. Finnish VTT Team has done some impressive work in the past and this example is nothing sort of spectacular in my book. The video was recorded a Dell laptop with a Quadro FX 3700M video card, a Core Duo processor and a […]
Kat Austen in New Scientist’s Culture lab presents a very interesting post on AR books. By AR books we – currently – refer to books that have some added information in the form of extra visuals which are projected through a a web-cam-equipped computer, tracking the book’s features, such as pictures, QR Codes etc. The […]
