Utility
Feedback coordination for a virtual interaction
22 Sep 20
In some implementations, a method includes: obtaining user movement information, wherein the user movement information characterizes real-world body pose and trajectory information of the user; generating, from real-world user movement information and a predetermined placement of the virtual instrument in the computer generated reality (CGR) environment, a predicted virtual instrument interaction time for a virtual instrument interaction prior to the virtual instrument interaction occurring; determining whether or not the predicted virtual instrument interaction time falls within an acceptable temporal range around one of a plurality of temporal sound markers; and in response to determining that the predicted virtual instrument interaction time falls within the acceptable temporal range around a particular temporal sound marker of the plurality of temporal sound markers, quantizing the virtual instrument interaction by presenting play of the virtual instrument to match the particular temporal sound marker of the plurality of temporal sound markers.
