Technologies for time-delayed augmented reality (AR) presentations includes determining a location of a plurality of user AR systems located within the presentation site and determining a time delay of an AR sensory stimulus event of an AR presentation to be presented in the presentation site for each user AR system based on the location of the corresponding user AR system within the presentation site. The AR sensory stimulus event is presented to each user AR system based on the determined time delay associated with the corresponding user AR system. Each user AR system generates the AR sensory stimulus event based on a timing parameter that defines the time delay for the corresponding user AR system such that the generation of the AR sensory stimulus event is time-delayed based on the location of the user AR system within the presentation site.
Augmented reality systems project virtual characters and objects onto physical locations, allowing for immersive experiences and novel interaction models. In some augmented reality systems, virtual characters or objects may be inserted into real-world images, for example by overlaying a captured image or video stream with a two- or three-dimensional animated rendering of the virtual character. In some implementations, a physical object recognized in the captured image may be replaced by a virtual object associated with that physical object. For example, recognized vehicles in the captured image may be recognized and replaced with animated vehicles (e.g., military vehicles, cartoon vehicles, etc.). Additionally, a user of the augmented reality system may be able to interact with the various virtual characters and/or objects.
Augmented reality experiences may be presented to multiple users in some cases. In such situations, each user is able to experience the same augmented reality. For example, a particular augmented reality presentation may include an augmented reality sensor stimulus event, such as a sound or tactile vibration, which is experienced by each of the augmented reality participants. In typical augmented reality systems, however, each participant experiences the augmented reality presentation and stimuli in the same time frame, which can lower the effect of immersion felt by the participants as a group.
