Title
(EN) REAL WORLD ACOUSTIC AND LIGHTING MODELING FOR IMPROVED IMMERSION IN VIRTUAL REALITY AND AUGMENTED REALITY ENVIRONMENTS
Abstract
(EN)

Systems and methods for modeling acoustic and lighting to provide improved immersion in a virtual reality and/or augmented reality environment are provided. In one aspect, systems and methods are provided to promote “improved augmented reality” which increases the realism and/or presence of virtual objects in the user's real environment. In some embodiments, changes in the user's actual room lighting are modeled in the virtual world to have a similar effect. In other embodiments, systems and methods are provided to promote immersion of a user in a virtual environment by extending the virtual world into the user's real world room. In this embodiment, lighting and/or sound from the virtual world is used to simulate the same or similar properties in the users actual, or real world environment, thereby improving virtual reality.
