Title: SWITCHING OF ACTIVE OBJECTS IN AN AUGMENTED AND/OR VIRTUAL REALITY ENVIRONMENT
Abstract:
In a virtual reality system, an optical tracking device may detect and track a user's eye gaze direction and/or movement relative to virtual objects included in virtual user interfaces displayed in a virtual environment, and sensors in a head mounted display device may detect and track a user's head gaze direction and/or movement relative to the virtual objects in the virtual environment. A processor may process the detected gaze direction and/or movement as a user input, and may move or rearrange one or more of the virtual objects in response to the detected gaze direction and/or movement.
