  • Publication number: 20220256119
    Abstract: A medical image assistance system and a medical image assistance method are provided. During a medical process, an image capturing apparatus located at a local location captures a first image and transmits the first image to a control device located at the local location, and the control device transmits the first image captured by the image capturing apparatus to an electronic apparatus located at a remote location. The electronic apparatus performs a marking operation on the first image to generate a second image, and transmits the second image to the control device. The control device transmits the second image to a head-mounted display apparatus located at the local location so that the head-mounted display apparatus simultaneously displays the second image and a real-time local image. The first image and the second image are at least partially the same in content.

  • Patent number: 9536159
    Abstract: Smart glasses and a method for recognizing and prompting a face are provided. The smart glasses store a database recording a plurality of profile information and business card information thereof. In the method, an image located in the field of view of the smart glasses is captured by an image capturing unit and at least one face appearing in the image is recognized. Facial features of each of the recognized faces are compared with those of the profile information in the database to find the profile information matching the facial features. In particular, if profile information matching the facial features is found, business card information corresponding to the profile information is displayed on a display unit; if profile information matching the facial features is not found, the business card information of a business card appearing in the image is recognized to associate the business card information with the recognized face.

  • Patent number: 9497414
    Abstract: A telephone with a video function is provided, including a projection module, a network module, a video-audio capturing module, a conference module and a processor. The network module provides a network interface. The video-audio capturing module is configured to capture an image and voice of a local user, and accordingly generates local video-audio data. The conference module provides the video conference function. The processor is electrically connected to the projection module, the network module, the video-audio capturing module and the conference module. When the processor enables the video conference function of the conference module, the telephone establishes a connection with a remote apparatus through the network interface, in order to receive a remote video-audio data of a remote user from the remote apparatus, and transmit the local video-audio data to the remote apparatus. The projection module projects an image corresponding to the remote video-audio data onto a projection surface.

  • Publication number: 20160091717
    Abstract: A display system and an operation method thereof are provided. The head-mounted display (HMD) device of the display system includes a camera, a monitor, a communication circuit and a processor. The processor is coupled to the monitor, the camera and the communication circuit. The processor receives and processes sensing data provided by a motion sensor of the display system through the communication circuit, so as to obtain a motion trajectory of the user. The camera photographs a person in a view field of the user. The processor performs image recognition to the video data provided by the camera, so as to obtain a motion trajectory of the person. The processor controls the monitor to display the motion trajectory of the user or the motion trajectory of the person.
