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 user's device for presentation. 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 the virtual content can include virtual objects overlaid on the image of the physical environment. Additionally, the system may include a frame with an environment-sensing system that is head-wearable by the user.

The method and system described in the patent involve communication between a computer network, mobile phone, and user device via wireless mobile network connections. The mobile phone executes a software application that acts as a gateway for communication with the computer network. The system allows for the presentation of virtual content to users based on inputs received from the mobile phone interface and environment-sensing system. The non-transitory computer-readable medium storing instructions for this method enables the generation of virtual world data and presentation of virtual content to users, including overlaying virtual objects on images of the physical environment captured by the mobile phone's camera.
