Application: Wearable authentication system and ring device (Patent ID: US20240029066A1)

The patent filed by HTC Corp describes a wearable authentication system that includes a head-mounted device and a ring device. The head-mounted device sends an authentication request and captures an image of the user's hand, while the ring device provides inertial measurement values and biometric information. The system tracks the position of the ring device based on the image and inertial measurement values, sending authentication information to the head-mounted device for user verification.

The wearable authentication system utilizes various biometric sensors such as photoplethysmographic, vein map, and fingerprint sensors to gather user-specific information for authentication purposes. The system can be used for virtual shopping experiences, where the position of the ring device determines checkout requests. Additionally, the system includes a network module for communication, a status LED for indicating device status, and a button for user input. The authentication information generated by comparing biometric data with pre-stored information ensures secure user verification and can be used for transactions through a point of sale machine.
