  • Patent number: 10838526
    Abstract: Objects are provided that can be manipulated relative to a touch-sensitive surface, in particular game pieces or buttons for interacting with a touch screen. A manipulable includes at least one lug enabling an interaction with the touch-sensitive surface; and a slot suitable for inserting the manipulable object on a holder that can be positioned relative to the touch-sensitive surface. The placement of the slot over the height of the manipulable object is suitable for keeping the at least one lug of the manipulable object in interaction with the touch-sensitive surface. Thus, the manipulable object allows the touch-sensitive surface to be interacted with at any time without any interaction errors, regardless of the position of this touch-sensitive surface relative to the horizontal. The touch-sensitive surface identifies any interaction (at a point or sliding) of the manipulable object and a non-erroneous location of this interaction on the tactile surface.
