  • Publication number: 20220122335
    Abstract: Methods, systems, apparatus, and computer-readable media (transitory or non-transitory) are described herein for scaling and rendering a virtual hand. According to an example, vision data may be received from a three-dimensional (ā€œ3Dā€) vision sensor. The vision data may capture at least a portion of a user in an environment, and may include data representing the user's hand relative to a touch interaction surface. The vision data may be processed to generate a 3D representation of the user's hand. A scaling center may be identified on the touch interaction surface to scale the 3D representation of the user's hand. The 3D representation of the user's hand may be scaled with respect to the identified scaling center using a scaling factor. The scaling factor may be based on a rendering constraint. A virtual hand may be rendered, e.g., on a display, based on the scaled 3D representation of the user's hand.

  • Patent number: 11290704
    Abstract: A method and corresponding system for reconstructing the surface geometry of a three-dimensional object is disclosed. The system comprises a cluster of heterogeneous sensors, including a two-dimensional high-resolution camera and a three-dimensional depth camera, and a turntable operable to rotate incrementally. In operation, the turntable is rotated to first and second positions and two-dimensional and three-dimensional data sets are obtained using the two-dimensional high-resolution camera and the three-dimensional depth camera. Corresponding features from the two-dimensional data sets are identified and used to identify the same corresponding features in the three-dimensional data sets. The three-dimensional corresponding features are used to calculate a three-dimensional homography, which is used to align the three-dimensional data sets. Following alignment, a three-dimensional mesh is generated from the aligned data sets.

  • Patent number: 10607397
    Abstract: Examples relate to capturing and processing three dimensional (3D) scan data. In some examples, 3D scan data of a real-world object is obtained while the real-world object is repositioned in a number of orientations, where the 3D scan data includes 3D scan passes that are each associated with one of the orientations. A projector is used to project a visual cue related to a position of the real-world object as the real-world object is repositioned at each of the orientations. The 3D scan passes are stitched to generate a 3D model of the real-world object, where a real-time representation of the 3D model is shown on a display as each of the 3D scan passes is incorporated into the 3D model.

  • Patent number: 10318077
    Abstract: A system includes a sensor to capture multiple images of a portion of a first object illuminated by coherent illumination and a time of capture of each of the images; and a processor to compare two images of the multiple images to identify one or more touch points. Each touch point has a difference in value between the two images that is greater than a threshold. Upon determining a spatial shape formed by the identified touch points that corresponds to a pointing end of a pointing object, the system provides at least one of: i) a touch location of the pointing end relative to the first object, where the touch location is based on the spatial shape formed by the identified touch points, or ii) the time of capture of a second image of the two images that produced the spatial shape.
