Title
(EN) METHOD AND APPARATUS FOR PROVIDING USER FEEDBACK
(FR) PROCÉDÉ ET APPAREIL DE FOURNITURE DE RÉACTION D'UTILISATEUR
Abstract
(EN)
A method and apparatus for providing visual feedback to a user during personal grooming activities. A target region of the user's body at which the personal grooming operation is being carried out is tracked. Progress of the personal grooming activity of the user is monitored. At least one item of feedback relevant to the user's personal grooming activity is determined and a relevant location on the user's body for visual projection of information indicative of the item of feedback is established. The feedback information is projected onto the user's body at the relevant location, which is viewable by the user in the mirror. Because the user is focused on the personal grooming activity by looking through the mirror at the target region of the body, the feedback information will automatically be in line with the user's gaze direction and also in focus for the user's eyes. A dynamic masking function may track the user's eyes and ensure light projection is not directed to the user's eyes.
(FR)
L'invention concerne un procédé et un appareil de fourniture d'une réaction visuelle à un utilisateur durant des activités de soins personnels. Une région cible du corps de l'utilisateur au niveau de laquelle l'opération de soins personnels est réalisée est suivie. La progression de l'activité de soins personnels de l'utilisateur est surveillée. Au moins un élément de réaction pertinent pour l'activité de soins personnels de l'utilisateur est déterminé et un emplacement pertinent sur le corps de l'utilisateur permettant une projection visuelle d'informations indiquant l'élément de réaction est établi. Les informations de réaction sont projetées sur le corps de l'utilisateur au niveau de l'emplacement pertinent, qui est visible par l'utilisateur dans le miroir. Du fait que l'utilisateur est concentré sur l'activité de soins personnels en regardant le miroir au niveau de la région cible du corps, les informations de réaction seront automatiquement cohérentes avec la direction du regard de l'utilisateur et également au centre de l'attention des yeux de l'utilisateur. Une fonction de masquage dynamique peut suivre les yeux de l'utilisateur et assurer qu'une projection de lumière n'est pas dirigée vers les yeux de l'utilisateur.
