Application: System and method for augmented and virtual reality (Patent ID: US20230370508A1)

The patent filed by Magic Leap Inc. describes a system that enables multiple users to interact within a virtual world by transmitting virtual world data from one user to another via a computer network. The system involves receiving inputs from a mobile phone interface and an environment-sensing system, generating virtual world data based on these inputs, and presenting virtual content to users. The mobile phone may have a camera to capture the physical environment and overlay virtual objects on it for the user to experience.

The method and system outlined in the patent involve the use of a mobile phone connected to a computer network via a wireless mobile network connection to facilitate the sharing and presentation of virtual world data between users. The mobile phone interface, which includes a touch screen display, allows for user interaction, while the environment-sensing system captures local environmental data. The patent also mentions the use of a frame coupled to the mobile phone, which can be head-wearable and includes the environment-sensing system. Overall, the technology described in the patent aims to enhance user experiences within virtual worlds by enabling seamless interaction and sharing of virtual content.
