Title (EN) VIRTUAL REALITY
(FR) RÉALITÉ VIRTUELLE
Abstract:
(EN) A virtual reality apparatus comprises an image generator to generate images representing a user of a virtual environment; the image generator being responsive to selection of a predetermined input by the user; a video camera for use in image-based tracking of a user by the image generator; in which the predetermined input selected by the user is the performing of a predetermined physical gesture in view of the video camera; and the image generator is arranged to generate a static or animated emote sticker responsive to the predetermined physical gesture of the user for display to other users.
(FR) Selon l'invention, un appareil de réalité virtuelle comprend un générateur d'images générant des images qui représentent un utilisateur d'un environnement virtuel, ce générateur d'images répondant à la sélection d'une entrée prédéfinie par l'utilisateur ; et une caméra vidéo destinée à être utilisée dans le suivi basé sur les images, par le générateur d'images, d'un utilisateur. L'entrée prédéfinie sélectionnée par l'utilisateur est la réalisation d'un geste physique prédéfini dans le champ de visée de la caméra vidéo, et le générateur d'images est prévu pour générer un autocollant émotexte statique ou animé en réponse au geste physique prédéfini de l'utilisateur, à des fins d'affichage pour d'autres utilisateurs.
