Abstract: A real time system for capturing humans in 3D and placing them into a mixed reality environment is presented in this thesis. The subject is captured by nine firewire cameras surrounding her. Looking through a head-mounted-display with a camera in front pointing at a marker, the user can see the 3D image of this subject overlaid onto a mixed reality scene. The 3D images of the subject viewed from this viewpoint are constructed using a robust and fast shape-from-silhouette algorithm. The thesis also presents several techniques to produce good quality and speed up the whole system. The frame rate of this system is around 25 fps using only standard Intel processor based personal computers.Beside a remote live 3D conferencing system, this thesis also describes an application of the system in art and entertainment, named Magic Land, which is a mixed reality environment where captured avatars of human and 3D virtual characters can form an interactive story and play with each other. This system also demonstrates many technologies in human computer interaction: mixed reality, tangible interaction, and 3D communication. The result of the user study not only emphasizes the benefits, but also addresses some issues of these technologies.
