  • Patent number: 11934595
    Abstract: A user input device that includes a rotary input control is described herein. The rotary input control includes first and second ferritic substrates; first and second permanent magnets extending between the first and second ferritic substrates to form a magnetic circuit; one or more magnetizing coils wrapped around the first permanent magnet; and a wheel defining a central volume within which the first and second ferritic substrates, the first and second permanent magnets and the one or more magnetizing coils are positioned. The user input device also includes a control system configured to direct current to the one or more magnetization coils to change a magnetization of the first permanent magnet to adjust a resistance profile of the rotary input control.

  • Patent number: 11921937
    Abstract: An input device comprises a depressible element with two switches including a first switch configured to generate a first signal when the depressible element is depressed by a threshold distance and a second switch configured to generate a second signal indicating when the depressible element is depressed by the threshold distance and the second switch is in an active state. One or more processors may be configured to receive the first signal from the first switch; configure the second switch to change from an inactive state to an active state in response to receiving the first signal; receive the second signal from the second switch in the active state; determine whether the second signal indicates that the depressible element is depressed by the threshold distance; and generate event data confirming that the depressible element is depressed by the threshold distance in response to receiving the second signal.

  • Patent number: 11910915
    Abstract: An ergonomic keyboard apparatus comprising a keyboard frame including an ergonomic contour defined in part by a gabled portion of the keyboard frame that is pitched into a contoured peak that forms a first slope and a second slope on either side of the keyboard frame. A plurality of keys are disposed within the keyboard frame such that key tops of each of the plurality of keys follow the ergonomic contour of the keyboard frame. A wrist pad coupled to the keyboard frame has a gabled center portion and a surface contour that corresponds to the ergonomic contour of the keyboard frame defined by its gabled portion, first slope, and second slope. Each location along at least a portion of the surface contour of the wrist pad is elevated to at least a height of corresponding key tops of the plurality of keys.

  • Patent number: 11914794
    Abstract: A keyboard comprising a top case and a bottom case comprised of a transparent material and including: a plurality of recesses each configured to receive one of a plurality of light emitting diodes (LED); a plurality of cavities that extend linearly and radially from a middle portion of the bottom case toward an outer edge of the keyboard, where light emitted by the LEDs is directed radially towards and out of the outer edge of the keyboard, due in part to the emission pattern of the corresponding LED and by adjacent cavities of the plurality of cavities; and a plurality of screw bosses configured to receive screws that securedly couple the top case to the bottom case, wherein the bottom case is coupled to the top case forming an outer housing for the keyboard.

  • Patent number: 11907445
    Abstract: A computer peripheral device (e.g., a computer mouse) includes an optical sensor configured to generate optical data corresponding to a surface that the computer peripheral device is placed upon and a processor(s) configured to determine, based on the optical data, a relative displacement of the computer peripheral device along the surface, identify one or more characteristics of the surface based on the optical data; compare the one or more characteristics with one or more corresponding baseline characteristics stored in memory; classify, based on the comparing of the one or more characteristics with one or more corresponding baseline characteristics, a type of the surface; and adjust, based on the classified type of the surface, an aspect of the determination of the relative displacement of the peripheral device or an operation of the optical sensor that alters the generating of the optical data.

  • Patent number: 11907448
    Abstract: A method includes receiving sensor data from one or more sensors that corresponds to a location of a stylus device and determining that a tip of the stylus device is in contact with a physical surface based on the sensor data. While in contact, the method includes determining a new location of the tip of the stylus device based on the location data, mitigating a tracking error of the determined new location of the tip of the stylus device by translating the new location from a 3D space domain to a 2D space domain that corresponds to the physical surface and adjusting the new location based on a comparison of the new location and historical locations. The stylus device can further ascertain surface characteristics through sensor data and simulate surface characteristics via haptic feedback effects.

  • Patent number: 11880983
    Abstract: Embodiments of the present disclosure generally relate to livestreaming methods and systems, and more particularly to whiteboard presentation systems that can be used in a livestreaming or video conferencing environment. In some embodiments, the whiteboard presentation system is configured to perform one or more processing operations, such as capture images on a whiteboard, perform image processing routines on the captured images, and transmit processed images as a video feed to one or more remote users, such as people or locations attending a video conference. The image processing routines can include one or more operations such as image denoising, contrast enhancement, color reconstruction, segmentation of a presenter, and image reconstruction.
