  • Patent number: 11030606
    Abstract: A method for using an Augmented Reality (AR) device for processing transactions initiated at another device. The method includes acquiring, via an AR device, an image of a display of a user device. The method includes determining, based on image analysis of the image, that the user device displays an interactive transaction element for a transaction between the user device and a server. The method includes communicating with a server, that provides the interactive transaction element, to move functionality of the interactive transaction element from the user device to the AR device. The method includes generating a new interactive transaction element providing access to the transaction at the server.

  • Patent number: 11022806
    Abstract: A near-eye display system includes a transmissive display panel to display a near-eye light field frame comprising an array of elemental images. The transmissive display panel is configured to transmit light rays of the near-eye light field frame away from the user's eye and towards an array of curved beam splitters. The curved beam splitters collimate the transmitted light rays and reflect the collimated light rays back towards the transmissive display panel for passing to the user's eye.
