The goal of this project is to build a prototype system that acts as a visual window into another environment. Our system uses only off-the-shelf displays and cameras to show a 3-D scene on a 2-D screen. Using a face detector, we track where the viewer is relative to the screen, and then change the perspective shown on the screen to match, creating immersive 3-D illusions.
