  • Patent number: 12013985
    Abstract: Example systems, devices, media, and methods are described for controlling the presentation of a series of virtual or graphical elements on a display in response to hand gestures detected by an eyewear device that is capturing frames of video data with its camera system. An image processing system detects a series of hand shapes in the video data and determines whether it matches a predefined hand gesture. Each predefined hand gesture is associated with an action; for example, a leafing gesture is associated with a scrolling action. The system controls the display of a series of virtual elements, in accordance with the associated action. In an example series of hand shapes that includes flexing and extending the fingers of a single hand severally and continually in a leafing motion, the matching predefined leafing gesture is associated with a scrolling action, which displays the series of items in a display order, sequentially and in accordance with the detected speed of the moving fingers.

  • Patent number: 11922120
    Abstract: An autocomplete function for textual input uses situational parameters to predict the next words the user is intending to type. Situational and temporal parameters are based on textual input and sensor data of the user. A past time window is based on the situational and temporal parameters. Historical textual input and sensor data during the time window relating to the situational parameters are retrieved from a storage device and aggregated. A pre-existing model that relates the situational parameter to the time window is used to select a situational value based on the textual input and sensor data. Words relating to the situational parameter are listed that the user is likely to input next based on the selected situational value. The words are ranked by the probability that the user is intending to type each of the words. The highest ranked word is displayed to the user on a user interface.
