  • Patent number: 11039124
    Abstract: There is provided an information processing apparatus capable of presenting an object that is easy to be in a fusion state where connection is natural regardless of a distance, an information processing method, and a recording medium. In the information processing apparatus, a left-eye image and a right-eye image are output to acquire position information of an object in a depth direction to be perceived by a user, and a luminance correction region to be subjected to luminance correction is set to at least one of a first display region that is included in a display region for the left-eye image and overlaps a display region for the right-eye image, or a second display region that is included in the display region for the right-eye image and overlaps the display region for the left-eye image on the basis of the position information. The present technology can be applied to, for example, a transmissive HMD.

  • Patent number: 10372088
    Abstract: There is provided a power consumption management device including a power measurement unit configured to measure power consumption of an electrical device, an environmental factor measurement unit configured to measure a factor of an environment in which the electrical device is used, a storage unit configured to store a predicted value related to the power consumption in which a value of the factor of the environment is designated as a parameter, and a calculation/control unit. The calculation/control unit obtains the predicted value related to the power consumption stored in the storage unit based on the value of the factor of the environment measured by the environmental factor measurement unit and compares the obtained predicted value related to the power consumption to an actual measurement value related to the power consumption obtained based on a power consumption value measured by the power measurement unit.

  • Patent number: 10302952
    Abstract: Provided is a configuration for executing display information output control with improved visibility of a user wearable or portable display unit. A controller configured to execute display information output control on a user wearable or portable display unit is included. The controller sets a turning on (ON) period and a turning off (OFF) period and controls switching between afterimage consideration pulse display having the turning off period being set to be within an afterimage recognition period and normal pulse display having the turning off period being set to be longer than or equal to the afterimage recognition period, the turning on (ON) period being an output period of display information to the display unit, the turning off (OFF) period being a non-output period of display information to the display unit. The controller executes the switching control between the afterimage consideration pulse display and the normal pulse display depending on eye velocity of a user.
