Abstract

Disclosed are a system and method for wearable computing-based physical world disambiguation. The system and method utilize wearable computing devices, such as visual augmentation technologies, to clarify cross-cultural ambiguities or other potentially confusing elements in the real world via augmented reality (AR).

System and Method for Projection and Relative based Splicing with Wearable Computing

Wearable computing augments daily life by overlaying displays onto the physical world. For example, if an individual is reading a slang billboard that says "The new Brand Z shoes are great! Come buy these bad shoes!” the impression of “bad” might be contradictory to great. Other confusing terms are time and space notations. A tourist might approach a sign from the back side. If the sign says forward, the tourist might need disambiguation based on the direction of approach to the sign. Thus, this discussion addresses the following issues with wearable computing systems:

 Overlay definitions on top of a physical billboard or ticker or advertisement  If the billboard is digital on the display, the text or image can be altered  Emotions can be annealed based on what a user thinks and decorate an image

with pictures  Translate an image based on language and disambiguation information  Glass would filter out what is intended for a user and decorate the advertisement

based on local contexts

The novel contribution is a system and method for wearable computing-based physical world disambiguation. The system and method utilize wearable computing devices, such as visual augmentation technologies, to clarify cross-cultural ambiguities or other potentially confusing elements in the real world via augmented reality (AR). The system includes a mechanism that can relatively tailor an experience to an...
