Augmented Reality Modes on the Apple Mixed Reality HeadsetAugust 5, 2022
The system 100 may generate a sequence of augmented reality modes for a particular user based on biometric data, merchant and profile data, and/or device data. Augmented reality modes may also be based on biometric data associated with the computing device 120 user. These biometric data may include a user’s respiratory rate, heart rate, pupil dilation, and/or other physical data. Some embodiments may use artificial intelligence to determine a user’s emotional or mental state.
In one embodiment, a user of a computing device 120 may choose an item for purchase. To do so, the user may perform a gesture to select the item. The gesture may be a click, swiping, or grabbing motion. It may also be a gazing or thinking gesture, such as moving a threshold. This gesture may then be associated with a command. Once selected, the user may view the item through augmented reality.
The method of claim 9 also includes a second augmented reality mode activated when a user enters a predefined merchant location. The service provider’s terminal determines that the user has entered the predefined merchant location. Once the user has made the decision to make a purchase, the device may initiate a sequence of augmented reality modes. It may even detect the user’s presence at the location and initiate a sequence of interactions.
In addition to the scene viewer and ios-src, the AR Quick Look adds two new augmented reality modes. One, called AR Camera mode, places animals and furniture in a real-world environment. Nintendo has released a trailer for the new AR Camera mode and a list of Pocket Camp animals usable in the AR Camera mode. In addition, augmented reality games like Pokemon GO require users to be aware of their surroundings.
The seamless switching between AR and VR modes may be a major selling point of the Apple mixed-reality headset. Analyst Ming-Chi Kuo argues that the AR and VR headset would be equally comfortable providing both types of content. The question remains: will Apple’s AR headset be able to seamlessly switch between AR and VR modes? Let’s find out. There’s a lot of speculation, but we can expect more details soon.
Augmented Reality can help improve a number of processes in manufacturing. One example of this is in the assembly of aircraft wings. Using a tablet, novice trainees can better understand the instructions by seeing how they look like in a virtual environment. As a result, they are more likely to complete their task properly on the first try and save their valuable time. A similar study at the ARise ’15 conference showed that wing assembly workflows are dramatically improved with Augmented Reality, and this can lead to a significant reduction in errors.
