Francesco Cosco proposes a novel mixed reality paradigm that introduces the possibility of touching and seeing virtual objects in combination with a real scene.

Augmented reality, as the term suggests, typically refers to “adding” elements into a live-view of a physical environment via computer-generated imagery. However, a PhD student from the University of Calabria in Rende, Italy, has found a way to delete obtrusive elements and make them transparent using augmented reality itself.

In researching visuo-haptic applications that add the ability to see and touch virtual objects in a real scene, Francesco Cosco proposes a “novel mixed reality paradigm” that introduces the possibility of touching and seeing virtual objects in combination with a real scene, but without visual obtrusion produced by the haptic device.
