The United States Patent and Trademark Office has granted IRIS, a technology company bringing humanity into the augmented reality space, a patent enabling it to offer the first synchronized sharing of AR content in real-time across multiple devices.
To synchronize and experience three-dimensional content in real-time while accommodating the points of view of all users, IRIS has been issued a patent for a bridging technology that connects all devices (phones, tablets, and eyewear) in the XR space, regardless of the manufacturer. Because of the adaptability of devices, IRIS’s software selects the top qualities from each device’s platform and distributes those data among all devices. Although the company concentrates on music and entertainment, companies can use patented technology across various industries.
“The XR industry is a collection of competing and complementary efforts from several companies, each trying to carve their way into space. By nature of this competition, their resources are siloed and scattered. Companies come and go, and technology gets bought out and then pulled into a single ecosystem,” said Nick Rafkind, CEO and co-founder of IRIS.
IRIS’s software combines the current market’s solutions, brought together by its distinctive platform, enabling modulated sharing of augmented reality content across multiple devices. Thus, IRIS can centralize the most effective technologies, such as Google cloud and Azure spatial anchors, and select the best anchoring system for that area, causing all devices to use that system and removing all dependencies.
IRIS was established in 2019 to provide an alternative to the single-person-centric mindset prevalent in the AR industry. The actual uptake of IRIS’s technology is based on satisfying individual and group experiences. IRIS users pay only for the events they choose to attend and can access the software for free.
