04:30 Arxiv.org CS Breaking the Screen: Interaction Across Touchscreen Boundaries in Virtual Reality for Mobile Knowledge Workers. (arXiv:2008.04559v1 [cs.HC])

Virtual Reality (VR) has the potential to transform knowledge work. One advantage of VR knowledge work is that it allows extending 2D displays into the third dimension, enabling new operations, such as selecting overlapping objects or displaying additional layers of information. On the other hand, mobile knowledge workers often work on established mobile devices, such as tablets, limiting interaction with those devices to a small input space. This challenge of a constrained input space is intensified in situations when VR knowledge work is situated in cramped environments, such as airplanes and touchdown spaces. In this paper, we investigate the feasibility of interacting jointly between an immersive VR head-mounted display and a tablet within the context of knowledge work. Specifically, we 1) design, implement and study how to interact with information that reaches beyond a single physical touchscreen in VR; 2) design and evaluate a set of interaction concepts; and 3) build

04:30 Arxiv.org CS Pen-based Interaction with Spreadsheets in Mobile Virtual Reality. (arXiv:2008.04543v1 [cs.HC])

Virtual Reality (VR) can enhance the display and interaction of mobile knowledge work and in particular, spreadsheet applications. While spreadsheets are widely used yet are challenging to interact with, especially on mobile devices, using them in VR has not been explored in depth. A special uniqueness of the domain is the contrast between the immersive and large display space afforded by VR, contrasted by the very limited interaction space that may be afforded for the information worker on the go, such as an airplane seat or a small work-space. To close this gap, we present a tool-set for enhancing spreadsheet interaction on tablets using immersive VR headsets and pen-based input. This combination opens up many possibilities for enhancing the productivity for spreadsheet interaction. We propose to use the space around and in front of the tablet for enhanced visualization of spreadsheet data and meta-data. For example, extending sheet display beyond the bounds of the physical screen,

04:30 Arxiv.org CS Content Format and Quality of Experience in Virtual Reality. (arXiv:2008.04511v1 [cs.MM])

In this paper, we investigate three forms of virtual reality content production and consumption. Namely, 360 stereoscopic video, the combination of a 3D environment with a video billboard for dynamic elements, and a full 3D rendered scene. On one hand, video based techniques facilitate the acquisition of content, but they can limit the experience of the user since the content is captured from a fixed point of view. On the other hand, 3D content allows for point of view translation, but real-time photorealistic rendering is not trivial and comes at high production and processing costs. We also compare the two extremes with an approach that combines dynamic video elements with a 3D virtual environment. We discuss the advantages and disadvantages of these systems, and present the result of a user study with 24 participants. In the study, we evaluated the quality of experience, including presence, simulation sickness and participants' assessment of content quality, of three versions of a

Author(s): Sanjay Moudgalya, Edward O'Brien, B. Andrei Bernevig, Paul Fendley, and Nicolas RegnaultThe authors develop a general formalism to systematically construct parent Hamiltonians with quasiparticle excited states starting from a matrix product state (MPS) wave function. The resulting parent Hamiltonians are generically nonintegrable, and the quasiparticle excited states are thus examples of quantum many-body scars of the Hamiltonian. This method is used to recover well-known quantum scarred models, such as the AKLT spin chain, as well as to construct many new families of models, thus illustrating the close connection between parent Hamiltonians of MPS and quantum scarred models.

To birds, trees and sky reflected in glass appear to be habitat. They fly into windows at high speeds, and the loss of life is staggering. Unlike humans, most birds can see UV light. It therefore stands to reason that applying UV-reflecting coatings or patterns on windows and glass buildings can be particularly advantageous to prevent bird strikes. Tuning the UV reflectance properties of window glass (or any other surface for that matter) could result in higher UV reflectance that could be noticed by birds and potentially reduce bird-strike incidences, particularly in high-rise buildings and airplanes.

Physicists had previously shown that while time-reversibility is exponentially improbable in a natural environment—it is possible to design an algorithm to artificially reverse a time arrow to a known or given state within an IBM quantum computer. However, this version of the reversed arrow-of-time only embraced a known quantum state and is therefore compared to the quantum version of pressing rewind on a video to "reverse the flow of time."

17:16 ScienceDaily.com Brain noise contains unique signature of dream sleep

Dream or REM sleep is distinguished by rapid eye movement and absence of muscle tone, but electroencephalogram (EEG) recordings are indistinguishable from those of an awake brain. Neuroscientists have now found an EEG signature of REM sleep, allowing scientists for the first time to distinguish dreaming from wakefulness through brain activity alone. This could help in determining the prognosis for coma patients, and allow study of the impact of anesthesia on dreaming.
