Apple patented a new system of integration of real-virtual
Apple has patented a system which provides for the insertion of virtual objects into the real environment, via augmented reality.
This patent once again demonstrates the interest of Apple towards the technologies of AR, as confirmed multiple times by the same Tim Cook. In particular, this patent illustrates a series of techniques which allow to faithfully represent a digital object in a real environment, with a perfect fusion between the two “worlds”. Apple has detailed technically this technology, which theoretically merges virtual objects generated by computer/smartphone with the images in the real world, so that to offer an advanced experience of AR.
Taking advantage of the available hardware, the patent provides that a chair virtual is automatically optimized in the dimensions and the angles to be inserted in the living room real, for example, framed by the camera of the iPhone. To reach this result, Apple requires the use of high-definition camera, powerful image processors, and a hardware advanced positioning and location. All technologies present on an iPhone of the latest generation.
In the patent, Apple explains that this technology is perfect for sales and services companies working in the furniture industry and not only. The system also allows you to delete objects from a two-dimensional representation.
This will be one of the new features of the next iOS?
