Patents surrounding Apple AR and VR efforts now include one that focuses on how computer-generated reality allows players to change their appearance — and what happens when the hardware owner doesn't want them to.
It wouldn't be much of a fantasy battle game if all the characters were dressed in their users' casual clothes. But Apple argues that changing your appearance in a game could present some unwanted issues, and it's been granted a patent on how to stop it.
Specifically, "Identity-based inclusion/exclusion in a computer generated reality experience," is a newly-granted patent that will prevent a player changing their appearance. And if necessary, will simply exclude them from the entire CGR game.
"While a device is presenting a CGR experience to a user in an environment, representations of people within the physical environment may be altered," says Apple. "For example, in a multiplayer gaming experience, people other than the user may be presented as monsters or donning battle armor."
"However, in various circumstances, it may be undesirable for all people to be included in the CGR experience," it continues. "For example, it may be undesirable for a user's children or safety personnel to be displayed in an altered manner."
