Title: MANAGING PERMISSION FOR INTERACTING WITH VIRTUAL OBJECTS BASED ON VIRTUAL PROXIMITY
Abstract:
In some embodiments, techniques for managing interaction permissions for an object in a shared virtual environment are provided. The techniques may determine whether to present an object in a limited-interaction mode or in an interactive mode based on a permission condition. The permission condition may include a proximity condition that specifies a proximity threshold between two objects within the shared virtual environment that should be met in order to provide the object in the interactive mode. The proximity threshold may specify a distance between an avatar of an owning user of the object and the object; a distance between an avatar of an owning user of the object and an avatar of a user being presented the object, or other distances.
