A system that allows to seamlessly blend virtual images generated by a computer and a video stream recorded by a digital camera (e.g. a live footage) would have many applications.
In a virtual studio , a TV speaker or a teacher is shot in a blue screen environment, and is shown interacting with a fine looking environment. Virtual prototyping enable to review complex project avancements, using various representations, and possibly on multi-sites setups. Virtual medecine enables to do repetitive riskless training, or to easily build powerfull rehabilitation setups. Virtual archeology or achitecture enables to visit past or futur constructions. Specific styles can be used to show various hypothesis, and real-time manipulation is a powerfull interface to interact with the data base.
