summary So far yet, even the most advanced technology has not been able to substitute a human, his thoughts, feelings, dreams, longings, visions. It can though, removing need for all kind of effort from our everyday life, surrounding a human with unprecedented comfort, create feeling of peace and security. Task of a computer is to provide assistance, helping in calculations, forming of refined solids, It contains a compendium of knowledge and memory - but not creative skills. So far it's only a machine, with help of which a possibility of creative expression is expanded. It only can solve problems for a human faster and more efficient way, does not have the ability to describe (formulate) problems. Even while providing a support, does it do that honestly? It means, does it support us in those of our doings where we truly need it? Computers have enormous possibilities of use that are not exploited sufficiently and all the time new generations of yet quicker machines with unbelievable power are being created. Every new type of computer appears to be obsolete and insufficient within a few months. Insufficient for what?

title Impact of Design Tools with Game-Like Function on Designer
source CAADRIA 2007 [Proceedings of the 12th International Conference on Computer Aided Architectural Design Research in Asia] Nanjing (China) 19-21 April 2007
summary Various visualization design tools such as CG and VR have been widely used in the process of architectural design and urban planning. The applications of these tools not only assist the designers but also make it possible to involve other relevant professionals and ordinary residents. In order to enable more convenient applications of the tools in the design process and instigate the interests of additional parties of relevance, we add entertainment function to the design tools. In order to test the results of such design tools resembling computer games, we examined the status of users during the design process when these tools being employed. Comparison of the results of questionnaire and collections of physiological data indicated the unique effectiveness of game-like design tools. Pulse detection at ear was used to check the changes of blood supply for left and right hemispheres. The data collected were then visualized by complex Chaos analysis. Comparison of the processed data indicated the different brain status when a user applies these tools in the design and showed the effectiveness of the tools and their impact on the designer. Our results support the usefulness of game-like design tools and may lead to further developments of contents and methods to advance such tools.

title Immersive VR for scientific visualization
source IEEE Computer Graphics and Applications, 20(6), pp. 26-52
summary Immersive virtual reality (IVR) has the potential to be a powerful tool for the visualization of burgeoning scientific datasets and models. While IVR has been available for well over a decade, its use in scientific visualization is relatively new and many challenges remain before IVR can become a standard tool for the working scientist. In this presentation we provide a progress report and sketch a research agenda for the technology underlying IVR for scientific visualization. Among the interesting problem areas are how to do computational steering for exploration, how to use art-inspired visualization techniques for multi-valued data, and how to construct interaction techniques and metaphors for pleasant and efficient control of the environment. To illustrate our approaches to some of these issues, we will present specific examples of work from our lab, including immersive visualizations of arterial blood flow and of medical imaging.
