Interactive Blow and Burst of Giant Soap Bubbles
AbstractPrevious studies on virtual soap bubbles mainly focused on methods for visualizing the physical and geometrical properties of soap bubbles and paid little attention to the possible ways to enhance the interaction between the simulation and the user. In this paper, a user interaction-based giant soap bubble simulation system is proposed in which the free-form shape, size, and position of giant soap bubbles are determined by the user’s hand motions. Our method improves the controllability of soap bubble simulation by correcting the jerky hand trajectory and hand velocity to a smooth and gradual path. Our air flow transfer algorithm can produce detailed deformation and standing wave for soap film in real time. Our novel soap film bursting algorithm represents the process of the bursting phenomenon of soap-film and giant soap bubbles in a unified framework. The results of our experiment demonstrate that the system allows the user to experience the giant soap bubble blowing and bursting process in a virtual environment. View Full-Text
