|20130021486||HOSTED CAMERA REMOTE CONTROL - A motion capture system includes motion capture cameras positioned in various locations and orientations with respect to a motion capture volume. The motion capture system includes a host computing device that is operatively coupled with the motion capture cameras. The host computing device remotely controls operation of the motion capture cameras to record movement within the motion capture volume. At least one of the motion capture cameras includes a user-interface that is operable by a user to remotely initiate a control operation of the host computing device.||01-24-2013|
|20110025853||AUTOMATED COLLECTIVE CAMERA CALIBRATION FOR MOTION CAPTURE - A motion-capture system is provided. The motion-capture system includes a host computing system and a plurality of motion-capture cameras that are operatively coupled with the host computing system. Each of the motion-capture cameras is disposed in a different location and orientation relative to a motion-capture space and includes a marker-tracking optical filter to provide a marker-tracking mode and thereby relatively enhance light from markers on a moving body in the motion-capture space. One or more of the motion-capture cameras is remotely controllable to selectively interchange the marker-tracking optical filter with a scene-view optical component, so as to selectively transition the motion-capture camera between the marker-tracking mode and a scene mode, in which light from the markers is less enhanced than in the marker-tracking mode.||02-03-2011|
|20100239115||HEADSET ACCESSORY DEVICE SYSTEM - A headset system is provided. The headset system includes a speaker assembly to produce sound based on an audio signal, an attachment portion configured to orient the at least one speaker assembly proximate to an ear of a user such that the sound is directed substantially toward the ear of the user, and a mounting interface configured to interchangeably receive one of a plurality of accessory devices, wherein the plurality of accessory devices each have a mechanical coupling configuration compatible with the mounting interface.||09-23-2010|
|20090128482||Approach for offset motion-based control of a computer - A system for controlling a computing device. The system includes, a plurality of sensed locations corresponding to a sensed object, a sensing apparatus to sense a position of the sensed locations relative to the sensing apparatus, and a motion control engine executable on a computing device, in response to the motion control engine receiving position data indicative of the position of the sensed locations from the sensing apparatus, the motion control engine to generate an adjusted position based on the position data, wherein the adjusted position is offset from the position of the sensed locations, and wherein the adjusted position is fixed relative to the position of the sensed locations.||05-21-2009|
|20080211771||Approach for Merging Scaled Input of Movable Objects to Control Presentation of Aspects of a Shared Virtual Environment - A system for controlling operation of a computer. The system includes, a sensing apparatus configured to obtain positional data of a sensed object controllable by a first user, such positional data varying in response to movement of the sensed object, and engine software operatively coupled with the sensing apparatus and configured to produce control commands based on the positional data, the control commands being operable to control, in a multi-user software application executable on the computer, presentation of a virtual representation of the sensed object in a virtual environment shared by the first user and a second user, the virtual representation of the sensed object being perceivable by the second user in a rendered scene of the virtual environment, where the engine software is configured so that the movement of the sensed object produces control commands which cause corresponding scaled movement of the virtual representation of the sensed object in the rendered scene that is perceivable by the second user.||09-04-2008|
