  • Patent number: 11762952
    Abstract: Aspects of the present disclosure are directed to an artificial reality (XR) application system controlling applications in an artificial reality environment. In various cases, these controls include automatically suggesting XR applications by determining an XR context and identifying applications that match the XR context. These applications can be suggested to a user, who can authorize their execution, setting permissions for the application. In some cases, applications can be divided into components which can be progressively downloaded. By providing application suggestions relevant to the current context and progressively downloading application components, applications can appear ambient, rather than relying on users to constantly download, install, or activate applications. Permissions for applications may be revoked permanently or for certain situations—either through user permissions selections or automatically in response to determined user intents.

  • Publication number: 20230154058
    Abstract: In one embodiment, a method includes, by an operating system of a first artificial-reality device, receiving a notification that virtual objects are shared with the first artificial-reality device by a second artificial-reality device, where the virtual objects are shared by being placed inside a sender-side shared space anchored to a physical object. The method further includes the first artificial-reality device accessing descriptors of a physical object and a spatial-relationship definition between the physical object and a receiver-side shared space, detecting physical objects based on the descriptors, determining pose of the receiver-side shared space, detecting physical constraints within the receiver-side shares space, receiving display instructions for the virtual objects, and rendering the virtual objects on the first artificial-reality device in the receiver-side shared space.

  • Patent number: 11556172
    Abstract: Methods and systems described herein are directed to viewpoint coordination of multiple users on artificial reality collaboration models. Multiple users can collaborate on 3D models in an artificial reality environment. Attention indicators can indicate to the other users where a user is looking or where the user is pointing. In some implementations, there is a central model that each user sees from her own perspective (e.g., in the center of a virtual table all users are seated around) and/or instances of the model that only an individual user sees or can manipulate. The user's attention indicators can be based on where the user is looking or pointing on the model instances. Additionally, attention indicators can be translated from a controlling user's perspective to a coordinate system defined by the model, which allows the indicators to be then presented in that model coordinate system for all users.

  • Publication number: 20220414999
    Abstract: The present technology relates to artificial reality systems. Such systems provide projections a user can create to specify object interactions. For example, when a user wishes to interact with an object outside her immediate reach, she can use a projection to select, move, or otherwise interact with the distant object. The present technology also includes object selection techniques for identifying and disambiguating between objects, allowing a user to select objects both near and distant from the user. Yet further aspects of the present technology include techniques for interpreting various bimanual (two-handed) gestures for interacting with objects. The present technology further includes a model for differentiating between global and local modes for, e.g., providing different input modalities or interpretations of user gestures.

  • Publication number: 20220276765
    Abstract: Aspects of the present disclosure are directed to an artificial reality system orchestrating interactions between virtual object “augments.” The orchestration can include linking, which can be forming two or more augments into a combination, embedding an augment within an existing combination, or triggering an action mapped to the linking of those augments. Another type of orchestration can include extracting, which can refer to taking an augment out of an existing combination, either by removing it from the combination or copying the augment to leave a version in the combination and having another version outside the combination.

  • Publication number: 20220261088
    Abstract: The disclosed technology can perform application controls in response to recognizing particular gestures. The disclosed technology can provide a launcher with virtual objects displayed in categories (e.g., history, pinned favorites, people, and a search area). The disclosed technology can perform a clone and configure input pattern, which clones a source virtual object into one or more cloned virtual objects with alternate configuration properties. The disclosed technology can perform a page or peel input pattern, which allows users to page between grids of virtual objects and facilitates peeling items out of the grid. The disclosed technology can perform a clutter and clear input pattern, which can expand multiple elements into individual views, while clearing other virtual objects.

  • Patent number: 11232643
    Abstract: The present embodiments relate to generating 3D objects in an artificial reality environment and collapsing 3D objects into 2D images representing the 3D objects. Users operating extra reality (XR) devices controlling the artificial reality environment can collaboratively create or modify content in the artificial reality environment, using real-world creation objects (such as a hand of the user or a pen held by the user) to create 3D objects. In response to a user triggering a collapse for a 3D object, a 2D image of the 3D object can created, from the user's perspective. The 2D image can replace the 3D object in the artificial reality environment. Presenting the 2D image can reduce the amount of data, processing resources, and power needed to provide the artificial reality environment while also reducing clutter and cognitive load on the user.
