Patent: Displaying three-dimensional virtual objects based on field of view

Publication Number: 10176641

Publication Date: 2019-01-08

Applicants: Microsoft

Abstract

Examples disclosed relate to displaying virtual objects. One example provides, on a display device comprising a camera and a display, a method comprising acquiring, via the camera, image data imaging an environment, receiving a user input requesting display of a three-dimensional virtual object, comparing dimensional information for the three-dimensional virtual object to dimensional information for a field of view of the display device, modifying the three-dimensional virtual object based upon comparing the dimensional information for the three-dimensional virtual object to the dimensional information for the field of view to obtain a modified three-dimensional virtual object, and displaying the modified three-dimensional virtual object via the display.

Background

Mixed reality display systems, such as head-mounted display systems, may be configured to present virtual imagery superimposed over a view of a real world background to provide an immersive visual experience.

Summary

Examples are disclosed herein that relate to displaying three-dimensional virtual objects. One example provides, on a display device comprising a camera and a display, a method comprising acquiring, via the camera, image data imaging an environment, receiving a user input requesting display of a three-dimensional virtual object, comparing dimensional information for the three-dimensional virtual object to dimensional information for a field of view of the display device, modifying the three-dimensional virtual object based upon comparing the dimensional information for the three-dimensional virtual object to the dimensional information for the field of view to obtain a modified three-dimensional virtual object, and displaying the modified three-dimensional virtual object via the display.

Another example provides a display device comprising a camera, a display, a logic subsystem, and a storage subsystem comprising instructions that are executable by the logic subsystem to acquire image data imaging an environment via the camera, from the image data detect a surface within the environment, receive a user input requesting display of a three-dimensional virtual object, display the three-dimensional virtual object via the display, receive a user input moving a position of the three-dimensional virtual object, detect the three-dimensional virtual object being moved to within a threshold distance of the surface, display the three-dimensional virtual object to appear as being positioned on the surface, and constrain movement of the three-dimensional virtual object to being along the surface.

Yet another example provides a display device comprising a depth camera, a display, a logic subsystem, and a storage subsystem comprising instructions that are executable by the logic subsystem to acquire image data of an environment and monitor the environment via the camera, detect the presence of a physical hand in the environment, and in response, automatically display a menu via the display.

This Summary is provided to introduce a selection of concepts in a simplified form that are further described below in the Detailed Description. This Summary is not intended to identify key features or essential features of the claimed subject matter, nor is it intended to be used to limit the scope of the claimed subject matter. Furthermore, the claimed subject matter is not limited to implementations that solve any or all disadvantages noted in any part of this disclosure.
