  • Patent number: 9652892
    Abstract: Various embodiments relating to creating a virtual shadow of an object in an image displayed with a see-through display are provided.

The virtual object may appear in front of a real-world background when viewed through the see-through display. A relative brightness of the real-world background around a virtual shadow of the virtual object may be increased when viewed through the see-through display. The virtual shadow may appear to result from a spotlight that is fixed relative to a vantage point of the see-through display.

  • Patent number: 9390561
    Abstract: Methods for generating and displaying personalized virtual billboards within an augmented reality environment are described. The personalized virtual billboards may facilitate the sharing of personalized information between persons within an environment who have varying degrees of acquaintance (e.g., ranging from close familial relationships to strangers). In some embodiments, a head-mounted display device (HMD) may detect a mobile device associated with a particular person within an environment, acquire a personalized information set corresponding with the particular person, generate a virtual billboard based on the personalized information set, and display the virtual billboard on the HMD. The personalized information set may include information associated with the particular person such as shopping lists and classified advertisements.
