  • Publication number: 20220011576
    Abstract: Aspects of the present disclosure relate to optical systems with ergonomic presentation of content for use in head-worn computing systems. A method for controlling a head-worn computer when viewing virtual images, including image content, that encourages an ergonomic head position to reduce neck pain, includes determining an angle of the head-worn computer relative to horizontal, determining an angle of a line of sight to the center of the virtual image as presented to a user's eye, determining a deviation between the determined angle of the line of sight and a predetermined ergonomic angle, and shifting the image content of the virtual image vertically as displayed to the user's eye so that a portion of the image content is not viewable, wherein the amount of shifting is in reverse correspondence to the magnitude of the determined deviation.

  • Publication number: 20210397271
    Abstract: A head-worn computer includes a camera system positioned to capture a surrounding environment in front of a user, a processor that identifies a position of a plurality of light emitters mounted on a hand-held controller from images captured by the camera system and tracks the position of the plurality of light emitters as the hand-held controller moves in the surrounding environment and interprets the tracked position as positional changes of the hand-held controller. The processor uses the position of the plurality of light emitters as markers in three dimensional space, the markers used as an anchor for virtual content presented in a see-through display of the head-worn computer.
