Figure 1 : An augmented elastic object undergoing large deformations and topological changes. The computation of the physics-based deformation, the cut detection and the topological modification of the underlying volumetric model are all performed in real-time. ABSTRACT Current methods dealing with non-rigid augmented reality only provide an augmented view when the topology of the tracked object is not modified, which is an important limitation. In this paper we solve this shortcoming by

Singularities caused by topological changes are detected by analyzing the displacement field of the underlying deformable model. These topological changes are then applied to the physics-based model to approximate the real cut. All these steps, from deformation to cutting simulation, are performed in real-time. This significantly improves the coherence between the actual view and the model, and provides added value.
