  • Publication number: 20210133506
    Abstract: Disclosed herein are examples of a wearable display system capable of determining a user interface (UI) event with respect to a virtual UI device (e.g., a button) and a pointer (e.g., a finger or a stylus) using a neural network. The wearable display system can render a representation of the UI device onto an image of the pointer captured when the virtual UI device is shown to the user and the user uses the pointer to interact with the virtual UI device. The representation of the UI device can include concentric shapes (or shapes with similar or the same centers of gravity) of high contrast. The neural network can be trained using training images with representations of virtual UI devices and pointers.
