  • Patent number: 10984637
    Abstract: Haptic effects have long been provided to enhance content, such as by providing vibrations, rumbles, etc. in a remote controller or other device being used by a user while watching or listening to the content. To date, haptic effects have either been provided by programming controls for the haptic effects within the content itself, or by providing an interface to audio that simply maps certain haptic effects with certain audio frequencies. The present disclosure provides a haptic control interface that intelligently induces haptic effects for content, in particular by using machine learning to detect specific features in content and then induce certain haptic effects for those features.
    Type: Grant
    Filed: September 24, 2019
    Date of Patent: April 20, 2021
    Assignee: NVIDIA CORPORATION

  • Publication number: 20210086070
    Abstract: Interactive computer applications, such as video games, are generally developed to allow user interaction through input keys of either a keyboard or a remote controller. In some cases, video games can also be developed to allow user interaction through voice commands. In any case, the user is limited to using the specific input keys and/or voice commands preprogrammed within the application to control various aspects of the application. The present disclosure provides a voice command interface that enables use of additional voice commands to control aspects of the application other than the voice commands preprogrammed within the application. The voice command interface can be used for one or more interactive computer applications.
