  • Patent number: 10510189
    Abstract: In an information processing system 1, an information processing apparatus 10 recognizes, when a user moves real bodies 120a and 120b arranged on a play field 19, the movement on the basis of, for example, an image taken by a camera 122 taking an image of the movement to interlock objects of corresponding characters 202a and 202b displayed on a display apparatus 16. In addition, when the user moves the characters 202a and 202b through an input apparatus 14, the information processing apparatus 10 transmits a control signal to the corresponding real bodies 120a and 120b to perform interlocking. When a situation in which interlocking between the real bodies 120a and 120b and the characters 202a and 202b is difficult occurs, an appropriate scenario is selected from the scenarios prepared in advance and realized, thereby maintaining the consistency.

  • Patent number: 10192360
    Abstract: By extracting figures of a play field and a display apparatus from a taken image, the positional coordinates of the play field and a screen in a world coordinate system are obtained. Next, a virtual world is built such that the ground of the virtual world is positioned continually flush with the surface of the play field in a real world, on the opposite side of the real world with the screen in between in a virtual space defined in the world coordinate system. Then, a virtual viewpoint is placed at a position corresponding to the viewpoint of a user in a real space so as to generate an image with the virtual world projected to the screen on the basis of this virtual viewpoint as a display image.
