Title
(EN) CONTROLLER VISUALIZATION IN VIRTUAL AND AUGMENTED REALITY ENVIRONMENTS
(FR) VISUALISATION DE DISPOSITIF DE COMMANDE DANS DES ENVIRONNEMENTS DE RÉALITÉ VIRTUELLE ET AUGMENTÉE
Abstract
(EN)
Controller visualization systems and methods for use in virtual/augmented reality environments such as walk-around virtual reality environments are described. The virtual representation of a physical control device may be altered based on the context of the virtual environment. Certain embodiments combine the virtual rendering of the tracked control device with a real-time video representation of part of the operating space. In certain embodiments, the display of additional information relating to the function of interactive elements may be displayed based on context, such as when a specific action is required from a user in the virtual space.
(FR)
L'invention concerne des systèmes et des procédés de visualisation de dispositif de commande destinés à être utilisés dans des environnements de réalité virtuelle/augmentée, tels que des environnements de réalité virtuelle portatifs. La représentation virtuelle d'un dispositif de commande physique peut être modifiée sur la base du contexte de l'environnement virtuel. Certains modes de réalisation combinent le rendu virtuel du dispositif de commande de suivi avec une représentation vidéo en temps réel d'une partie de l'espace de fonctionnement. Selon certains modes de réalisation, l'affichage d'informations supplémentaires se rapportant à la fonction des éléments interactifs peut être représenté sur la base d'un contexte, par exemple lorsqu'une action spécifique est requise par un utilisateur dans l'espace virtuel.
