  • Patent number: 11650721
    Abstract: Disclosed herein are clutch and boom features that can enable the manipulation of user interface elements when using a touch-sensitive component to build or otherwise design a graphical display, such as a website, video game, magazine layout, etc. Upon touching user interface element to be manipulated, the user interface element can be targeted for manipulation. In response to a clutch user interface element being engaged, the targeted user interface element can be enabled for manipulation (e.g., colored, rotated, moved, etc.) by the user, while the non-targeted user elements are protected from manipulation. Boom is an example of manipulation functionality provided by some embodiments, which can be configured to move the targeted user interface element a precise amount (e.g., pixel-by-pixel).

  • Patent number: 11622096
    Abstract: An object feature visualization system is disclosed. The system may include a computing device that generates video-mapped images to project onto physical objects. The video-mapped images may include features to be projected onto the objects. The projection of a video-mapped image onto the physical object allows for the visualization of the feature on the object. In some examples, the computing device receives a feature selection for a particular object, and generates a video-mapped image with the selected feature to provide to a projector to project the video-mapped image onto the physical object. In some examples, a user is able to select one or more features for one or more objects of a room display via a user interface. The system then projects video-mapped images with the selected features onto the physical objects. The system may allow a user to save feature selections, and to purchase or request additional information about objects with selected features.

  • Patent number: 11599971
    Abstract: An image processing device includes a rotation processor, a parallax image generator, and a rotation controller. The rotation processor makes rotation processing including rotating first left and right images in a stereo image, to generate second left and right images. The parallax image generator calculates corresponding left and right image points in the second left and right images, to generate a parallax image. The rotation controller obtains a coordinate point to calculate an amount of angular change in a rotation angle in the rotation processing. The coordinate point indicates relation of a first positional difference in a horizontal direction and a second positional difference in a vertical direction, between first and second positions. The first and second positions are respective positions of the left and right image points in the second left and right images.
