Application: Systems and methods for operating a head-mounted display system based on user identity (Patent ID: US20230418054A1)

The patent filed by Magic Leap Inc. describes systems and methods for depth plane selection in display systems, particularly in augmented reality and mixed reality systems. The technology involves presenting virtual image content to a user's eye with different amounts of wavefront divergence corresponding to different depth planes at varying distances from the user. This is achieved by capturing images of the user's eye to determine if the user is identified, and adjusting the wavefront divergence based on this identification.

The wearable system outlined in the patent includes a display, a camera, and processors that work together to capture images of the user's eye, determine if the user is registered, and adjust the presentation of virtual image content accordingly. The determination of whether the user is registered involves iris scanning or authentication operations. If the user is not registered, default settings are used to determine the wavefront divergence, while registered users have personalized settings. Additionally, the system can register users, generate calibration profiles, and adjust settings based on captured information. The technology also allows for presenting virtual targets to the user and capturing additional images for further user identification.
