  • Publication number: 20190278339
    Abstract: Methods and apparatus to operate closed-lid portable computers are disclosed. An example apparatus includes a camera input analyzer to analyze image data captured by a world facing camera on a portable computer when a lid of the portable computer is in a closed position. The world facing camera is on a first side of the lid. The portable computer includes a primary display on a second side of the lid opposite the first side. The example apparatus further includes a secondary display controller to render content via a secondary display of the portable computer in response to the analysis of the image data. The secondary display controller is to render the content on the secondary display while the lid of the portable computer is in the closed position and the primary display is turned off.

  • Patent number: 10319145
    Abstract: Technologies for representing alternate reality characters in a real-world environment include receiving sensor data from sensors of a sensor network of a home location of an alternate reality character, determining available response to the stimuli represented by the sensor data, and determining an activity of the alternate reality character for a time period based on the available responses. The technologies may also include generating a video of the alternate reality character performing the determined activity superimposed on an image map of a real-world environment of the home location during the time period. Users may view the video in real time or during a time period subsequent to the time period represented in the video. Additionally, the alternate reality character may be transferred to remote computing devices in some embodiments.

  • Patent number: 9952820
    Abstract: Methods and apparatus to produce augmented reality representations across multiple devices are described. In one example, operation include generating a virtual object, generating a reality space including a first display, and presenting the virtual object in the reality space including the first display on a second display. Further operations include tracking a location of the virtual object in the reality space as the virtual object moves through the reality space, updating the presentation of the virtual object on the second display using the tracked location, and presenting the virtual object on the first display when the tracked location of the virtual object coincides with the location of the first display in the reality space.

  • Patent number: 9870069
    Abstract: A portable consumer device, such as a mobile phone or a tablet computer, may be configured to collect measurements data associated with at least one of movement of the portable consumer device or orientation of the portable consumer device, as well as data associated with an external environment of the portable consumer device. The collected data may be evaluated in order to determine motion of the portable consumer device over time and contextual information associated with the portable consumer device. A user activity may be determined based upon the determined motion and the determined contextual information. As desired, the user activity may be evaluated in association with a suitable application scenario, such as a gaming application scenario.

  • Publication number: 20140285512
    Abstract: Embodiments of a system and methods for presenting alternate visual presentations of physical objects on display devices are generally described herein. In some embodiments, a device may discover a set of objects present in an environment, each object in the set supporting at least one alternate visual presentation of the object. The device, or the user of the device, may then choose an object from the set of discovered objects, and choose at least one alternate visual presentation associated with the chosen object. The device may then display to the user the chosen alternate visual presentations of the chosen object.
