Application: Surface appropriate collisions (Patent ID: US20240105157A1)

The patent filed by Magic Leap Inc. describes systems and methods for presenting an audio signal associated with a virtual object colliding with a surface in a mixed reality environment. The audio signal is generated based on input from a microphone or sensor, and the collision may be related to a footstep on the surface. The system includes components such as a microphone, display, audio output, and processors to detect contacts, determine acoustic properties of surfaces, and generate audio signals based on these contacts and properties.

The system further involves presenting views of the contacts to the user, generating audio signals based on the contacts and surface properties, and presenting these audio signals concurrently with the visual representations. The method also includes detecting multiple contacts, associating audio signals with surfaces, utilizing physical models of surfaces and objects, analyzing audio streams, and storing audio signals in memory. Additionally, the system can determine positions of wearable devices, generate audio signals based on video stream information, and involve virtual objects colliding with surfaces. The acoustic properties considered include material properties like coefficients of absorption. Overall, the patent outlines a comprehensive system and method for enhancing mixed reality experiences through realistic audio feedback associated with virtual object interactions with surfaces.
