  • Patent number: 9720241
    Abstract: A method, includes pre-setting a geo-spatial location where content will be displayed to a user of a see-through head-worn display, establishing a region proximate the geo-spatial location; and causing a marker recognition system of the head-worn see-through display to activate when data indicates that the see-through head-worn display is within the region, wherein the marker recognition system monitors a surrounding environment to identify a marker that will act as a virtual anchor for the presentation of the content.

  • Patent number: 9720234
    Abstract: A head worn display for displaying a displayed image overlaid onto a see-through view of a surrounding environment that includes multiply folded optics, includes a solid prism with at least one optically powered surface and a planar surface that provides a first internal fold of an optical axis of an image light associated with the displayed image, a combiner that provides a second fold the optical axis associated with the image light and wherein a flat plate reflector is bonded to the planar surface of the solid prism to provide a flat reflective surface to the solid prism.

  • Patent number: 9684172
    Abstract: Aspects of the present disclosure relate to mounting electronics and optical systems in head-worn see-through computer displays. In embodiments, a head worn computer includes an optical chassis with a rigid open box structure configured to provide a stable optical mounting reference plane and a plurality of image source reference planes. The head worn computer further includes a first image source mounted on one of the image source reference planes to project first image light through a first hole in the optical mounting reference plane and a second image source mounted on a second of the image source reference planes and configured to project second image light through a second hole in the optical mounting reference plane. An outer frame holds the optical chassis such that, when worn by a user, the first and second image light is aligned with the eyes of the user.

  • Patent number: 9575321
    Abstract: A method includes receiving a personally selected geo-spatial location from a sender of digital content for the presentation of the digital content in a recipient's head-worn see-through display, and presenting, based on data indicative that the user is near the geospatial location, the digital content in the head-worn see-through display such that the digital content is perceived by the recipient to be associated with a physical attribute proximate the geo-spatial location.
