Method for producing a color image and imaging device employing same
A method of producing a color image comprising providing input image data from an image source such as a camera; generating an at least three-dimensional look-up table of values of input colors and output colors, wherein the values in the lookup table convert the input image color data to output image color data in an image rendering unit; loading the at least three-dimensional look-up table into an image color rendering controller; loading the input image data into the imaging color rendering controller; processing the input image data through the at least three-dimensional look-up table to produce output color values stored at the addresses in the at least three-dimensional look-up table; and outputting the output color values to the image rendering unit to produce an output image that is perceived to have at least one of enhanced brightness, enhanced contrast, or enhanced colorfulness compared to the input image.. .

Manipulation detection apparatus, manipulation detection method, and projector
A shadow region extraction portion compares the brightness of an image captured by a camera with a threshold value and extracts first and second shadows caused by first and second light sources for a user's finger. An approach degree detection portion detects an approach degree for the finger with reference to a manipulation surface from distance d between two feature points in the first and second shadows.

Sensor-monitored, 3d, interactive holographic freespace control unit (hfcu) and associated components
A sensor/camera-monitored, virtual image or holographic-type display device is provided and called a sensor-monitored, 3d, interactive holographic freespace control unit (hfcu). This invention allows user interactions with the virtual-images or holograms without contacting any physical surface; it is achieved via the use of a visually bounded freespace both with and without holographic-type assistance.
