  • Patent number: 10296086
    Abstract: A system and method of using a peripheral device for interfacing with a virtual reality scene generated by a computer for presentation on a head mounted display. The peripheral device includes a haptic device capable of being placed in contact with a user and a haptic feedback controller for processing instructions for outputting a haptic signal to the haptic device. The haptic feedback controller receiving the instructions from the computer so that haptic feedback of the haptic device changes to correspond to a user's virtual interactions with a virtual object in the virtual reality scene as presented on the head mounted display.

  • Patent number: 10073516
    Abstract: Inertial sensors within a head mounted display are used to track movement of the head mounted display. The tracked movement of the head mounted display is correlated to an action within a virtual reality scene that is currently displayed to a user wearing the head mounted display. The action within the virtual reality scene is based on a context of the virtual reality scene that is currently displayed. The detected movement of the head mounted display can be combined with other sensor data, such as gaze detection data, to determine the action within the virtual reality scene. In this manner, movements of the user as detected using the inertial sensors within the head mounted display are used as inputs to cause actions within the current context of the virtual reality scene as displayed within the head mounted display to the user.

  • Publication number: 20160266912
    Abstract: The present invention provides an external device, including a Boot ROM, a processing module, an internal RAM, and an external RAM. The Boot ROM implements a hardware initialization when receiving a boot command, and stores a download agent protocol and a communication interface protocol. The processing module creates a communication channel with the electronic device according to the communication interface protocol, downloads a download agent application from the electronic device through the communication channel according to the download agent protocol, downloads startup firmware for a startup program by the download agent application from the electronic device, and implements the startup program according to the startup firmware after implementing the hardware initialization. The internal RAM stores the download agent application. The external RAM stores the startup firmware.
