  • 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.

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 enables continuous gestures comprising touch gesture and in-air gesture portions as well as multi-plane gestures in which an initial touch gesture places the device into a mode or context in which it recognizes and acts upon subsequent in-air gestures. Touch operations of a mobile computing device can be based on user presence, user engagement, and a level of user interaction with the device.

  • Publication number: 20210026416
    Abstract: Computing devices and peripherals having a dynamic curvature are disclosed. The base of a laptop can curve as the laptop lid is opened due to left and right base portions being pulled inward to a bisector of the base. Base portions can be pulled inwards by a bending strap pushed upwards by a lifter spring, by base hinges that rotate inwards, or a shape memory allow wire laced around pulleys that contract when heated. A display device with dynamic curvature can curve due to a rack and pinion linear actuator that extends or shortens adjustable rods housed in the display support. A base or display can be curved based on the context of the computer device or in response to certain events. The curvature of a base or display can be tunable by a user. Curved bases and displays can reduce wrist and eye strain.

  • Patent number: 10755678
    Abstract: The presently disclosed display device includes one or more user detection sensors that determine a user location in respond to the display device. The display device then reformats image data based on the determined user location, such as by transitioning the image data from one mode to another and/or angling the image data toward the determined user location. When sharing the image data with another display device, the display devices may reformat the image data based on user location without a user manually entering a desired format or orientation. In addition, the display devices may determine whether they are touching or almost touching and, in response, split, reformat, or re-orient the image data to combine to form a single, larger display. By reformatting or orienting image data toward users using device sensors, instead of relying on user customization, the presently disclosed techniques provide more efficient and intuitive user experiences.
