  • Publication number: 20190243446
    Abstract: This disclosure relates to providing users with a shared augmented reality experience. Head-mounted devices are provided with the shared-augmented reality experience. The shared augmented reality experience may be provided to individual head-mounted devices based on sensor information conveyed by output signals of a sensor set of the individual head-mounted devices. The sensor set of the individual head-mounted devices have different reference frames. Discrepancies between the sensor set of the individual head-mounted devices may cause the shared-augmented reality experience to be presented with different perspectives. The individual head-mounted devices may have different perspectives of the shared-augmented reality experience caused by discrepancies between the sensor set of the individual head-mounted devices. The discrepancies between the sensor set of the individual head-mounted devices may be determined such that the shared-augmented reality experience is presented along a same or similar perspective.

  • Publication number: 20190243153
    Abstract: According to one implementation, a floating image display system includes a computing platform including a central processing unit (CPU), a graphics processing unit (GPU), and a system memory storing a software code. The system also includes one or more display screens controlled by the GPU, and a rotor coupled to the one or more display screens and controlled by the CPU. The CPU executes the software code to render a two-dimensional (2D) graphic on the one or more display screens using the GPU, and to spin the rotor and the one or more display screens about a vertical axis parallel to a display surface of the one or more display screens at a predetermined spin rate to generate a floating image of the 2D graphic. The floating image appears to be a three-dimensional (3D) floating image of the 2D graphic to a user viewing the floating image.

  • Patent number: 10339844
    Abstract: According to one implementation, an image display system includes a computing platform having a central processing unit (CPU), a system memory storing a software code, a display screen, and a motor controlled by the CPU and coupled to a rotor for rotating the display screen. The CPU is configured to execute the software code to spin the display screen about an axis at a predetermined spin rate using the motor and the rotor, and to render each of multiple perspectives of an image on the display screen at a frame rate during each revolution of the display screen about the axis. The predetermined spin rate is determined based on the number of perspectives of the image rendered per revolution of the display screen and the frame rate.

  • Patent number: 10192472
    Abstract: According to one implementation, an image display system includes a computing platform having at least one processor and a system memory storing a software code. In addition, the image display system includes a display screen having a front display face and a side display face, and a base including a motor coupled to a rotor for rotating the display screen. The at least one processor executes the software code to render a two-dimensional (2D) graphic on the front display face of the display screen, and to render a visual effect on the side display face of the display screen. The at least one processor further executes the software code to use the motor and the rotor to spin the display screen to cause appearances of the 2D graphic as a floating image and the visual effect as a volumetric enhancement to the floating image.
