  • Patent number: 11029906
    Abstract: Apparatuses and methods for managing display content across overlapping devices are disclosed. A display connected to or part of a first device may be at least partially occluded by a second device. In the disclosed embodiments, the first device detects the position and orientation of the second device relative to the display, determines a portion of the display that is occluded by the second device, and manages the content of the display and/or a display connected to the second device to accommodate the occluded portion. In some embodiments, the content is managed with respect to the context of the content displayed on the displays connected to the first and second devices.

  • Publication number: 20210149441
    Abstract: A lid controller hub (LCH) comprising processing components located in the lid of a mobile computing device, such as a laptop, processes sensor data generated by input sensors (microphones, cameras, touchscreen) and provides for improved and enhanced experiences over existing devices. For example, the LCH provides hardened privacy and the synchronization of touch display activities with the display refresh rate, the latter providing for a smoother and more responsive touch experience over existing designs. The LCH comprises neural network accelerators and digital signal processors that enable waking a device upon detection of an authenticated user's voice or face. The LCH also allows for video- and audio-based contextual awareness and adaptive cooling. By enabling a reduced hinge wire count and a typical day's usage with a single battery charge, an LCH can also provide for an improved industrial design to a simpler hinge and smaller battery.
