Title
(EN) BLENDED REALITY SYSTEMS AND METHODS
(FR) SYSTÈMES ET PROCÉDÉS DE RÉALITÉ MÉLANGÉE
Abstract
(EN) Systems and methods are provided for generating a blended reality view to a user, the blended reality view combining images reflected by a mirror with images transmitted from a screen behind the mirror. Systems for generating blended reality views can include a display device with a screen positioned behind a mirror. The display device can generate a pattern of illumination and non-illumination on the screen so that the illuminated portions of the screen substantially transmit through the mirror. Projectors can be used to illuminate objects in front of the mirror so that the illuminated objects are reflected by the mirror. In combination, the portions of the screen transmitted through the mirror and the illuminated objects reflected by the mirror can provide a blended reality view to a user viewing the mirror.
(FR) L'invention concerne des systèmes et des procédés mis en œuvre pour générer une image de réalité mélangée à un utilisateur, l'image de réalité mélangée combinant des images réfléchies par un miroir avec des images transmises en provenance d'un écran se trouvant derrière le miroir. Des systèmes permettant de générer des images de réalité mélangée peuvent comprendre un dispositif d'affichage avec un écran positionné derrière un miroir. Le dispositif d'affichage peut générer un motif d'éclairage et de non-éclairage sur l'écran de telle sorte que les parties éclairées de l'écran passent sensiblement à travers le miroir. Des projecteurs peuvent être utilisés pour éclairer des objets se trouvant devant le miroir, de telle sorte que les objets éclairés sont réfléchis par le miroir. Quand ils sont combinés, les parties de l'écran transmises à travers le miroir et les objets éclairés réfléchis par le miroir peuvent fournir une image de réalité mélangée à un utilisateur regardant le miroir.
