Title
(EN) VIRTUAL REALITY
(FR) RÉALITÉ VIRTUELLE
Abstract
(EN) Virtual reality apparatus comprises a display generator to generate images of a virtual environment, including a virtual representation of a display object and at least part of an avatar, for display to a user; a haptic interface comprising one or more actuators to provide a physical interaction with the user in response to a haptic interaction signal; a detector arrangement configured to detect two or more haptic detections applicable to a current configuration of the avatar relative to the object in the virtual environment; and a haptic generator to generate the haptic interaction signal in dependence upon the two or more haptic detections.
(FR) La présente invention concerne un appareil de réalité virtuelle qui comprend un générateur d'affichage pour générer des images d'un environnement virtuel, qui comprend une représentation virtuelle d'un objet d'affichage et au moins une partie d'un avatar, pour l'affichage pour un utilisateur ; une interface haptique qui comprend un ou plusieurs actionneurs pour fournir une interaction physique avec l'utilisateur en réponse à un signal d'interaction haptique ; un agencement de détecteur configuré pour détecter au moins deux détections haptiques applicables sur une configuration actuelle de l'avatar par rapport à l'objet dans l'environnement virtuel ; et un générateur haptique pour générer le signal d'interaction haptique en fonction des deux, ou plus, détections haptiques.
