Title (EN) SYSTEMS AND METHODS FOR ADJUSTING THE DISPLAY QUALITY OF AN AVATAR DURING AN ONLINE OR VIRTUAL SHOPPING SESSION
(FR) SYSTÈMES ET PROCÉDÉS POUR AJUSTER LA QUALITÉ D'AFFICHAGE D'UN AVATAR PENDANT UNE SESSION D'ACHAT EN LIGNE OU VIRTUELLE
Abstract:
(EN) In some embodiments, apparatuses and methods are provided herein useful for providing an online shopping experience that conserves computing resources. In some embodiments, there is provided a system including: a shopping server receiving a user request to view a virtual shopping environment; a control circuit causing the display of virtual shopping images on a user computer to emulate a real-life shopping experience for the user; wherein the control circuit is configured to: navigate the virtual shopping environment; cause the display of an avatar representing the user in the virtual shopping environment; cause the display of the avatar at a first resource consumption setting where the avatar is interacting with a certain type of product; and cause the display of virtual shopping images at a second, reduced resource consumption setting where the avatar is not interacting with these products.
(FR) La présente invention porte, dans certains modes de réalisation, sur des appareils et sur des procédés utiles pour fournir une expérience d'achat en ligne qui conserve des ressources informatiques. Selon certains modes de réalisation, la présente invention concerne un système comprenant : un serveur d'achat recevant une demande d'utilisateur pour visualiser un environnement d'achat virtuel; un circuit de commande provoquant l'affichage d'images d'achat virtuelles sur un ordinateur d'utilisateur pour émuler une expérience d'achat authentique pour l'utilisateur; le circuit de commande étant configuré de sorte : à naviguer dans l'environnement d'achat virtuel; à provoquer l'affichage d'un avatar représentant l'utilisateur dans l'environnement d'achat virtuel; à provoquer l'affichage de l'avatar à un premier réglage de consommation de ressources où l'avatar interagit avec un certain type de produit; et à provoquer l'affichage d'images d'achat virtuelles à un second réglage de consommation de ressources réduit où l'avatar n'interagit pas avec ces produits.
