  • Patent number: 11222471
    Abstract: Approaches presented herein enable implementation of augmented reality in a smart glasses device. More specifically, two-dimensional (2-D) image data of a real-world object is collected from a 2-D camera of the smart glasses device. From the collected 2-D image data, 2-D coordinate data is generated. Based on location and rotation data of the smart glasses device and 2-D depth information from a viewing angle of the smart glasses device, three-dimensional (3-D) coordinates are generated from the generated 2-D coordinate data. An augmented object is displayed, on a holographic display of the smart glasses device, at an apparent location of the real-world object utilizing the 3-D coordinates.
