  • Publication number: 20190253699
    Abstract: Systems and methods for capturing a two dimensional (2D) image of a portion of a three dimensional (3D) scene may include a computer rendering a 3D scene on a display from a user's point of view (POV). A camera mode may be activated in response to user input and a POV of a camera may be determined. The POV of the camera may be specified by position and orientation of a user input device coupled to the computer, and may be independent of the user's POV. A 2D frame of the 3D scene based on the POV of the camera may be determined and the 2D image based on the 2D frame may be captured in response to user input. The 2D image may be stored locally or on a server of a network.

  • Patent number: 9848184
    Abstract: Systems and methods for a head tracked stereoscopic display system that uses light field type data may include receiving light field type data corresponding to a scene. The stereoscopic display system may track a user's head. Using the received light field type data and the head tracking, the system may generate three dimensional (3D) virtual content that corresponds to a virtual representation of the scene. The stereoscopic display system may then present the 3D virtual content to a user. The stereoscopic display system may present a left eye perspective image and a right eye perspective image of the scene to the user based on the position and orientation of the user's head. The images presented to the user may be updated based on a change in the position or the orientation of the user's head or based on receiving user input.

  • Patent number: 9841821
    Abstract: In some embodiments, a system and/or method may assess handedness of a user of a system in an automated manner. The method may include displaying a 3D image on a display. The 3D image may include at least one object. The method may include tracking a position and an orientation of an input device in open space in relation to the 3D image. The method may include assessing a handedness of a user based on the position and the orientation of the input device with respect to at least one of the objects. In some embodiments, the method may include configuring at least a portion of the 3D image based upon the assessed handedness. The at least a portion of the 3D image may include interactive menus. In some embodiments, the method may include configuring at least a portion of an interactive hardware associated with the system based upon the assessed handedness.

  • Patent number: 9703400
    Abstract: Virtual plane and use in a stylus based three dimensional (3D) stereoscopic display system. A virtual plane may be displayed in a virtual 3D space on a display of the 3D stereoscopic display system. The virtual plane may extend from a stylus of the 3D stereoscopic display system. Content may be generated in response to a geometric relationship of the virtual plane with at least one virtual object in the virtual 3D space. The generated content may indicate one or more attributes of the at least one virtual object. The content may be presented via the 3D stereoscopic display system.

  • Patent number: 9467685
    Abstract: Systems and methods for calibrating a three dimensional (3D) stereoscopic display system may include rendering a virtual model on a display of a 3D stereoscopic display system that may include a substantially horizontal display. The virtual model may be geometrically similar to a physical object placed at a location on the display. A vertex of the virtual model may be adjusted in response to user input. The adjustment may be such that the vertex of the virtual model is substantially coincident with a corresponding vertex of the physical object.
