  • Patent number: 10328342
    Abstract: Methods, apparatuses, systems, and storage media for creating, discovering, and/or resolving spells using a wand are provided. In embodiments, a computing device or a wand may detect one or more gestures and sensors in the wand may generate sensor data representative of the one or more gestures. The one or more gestures may be movements performed using the wand. The sensor data representative of the one or more gestures may be converted into a spell sequence. The wand may transmit the spell sequence to a computing device, and receive, from the computing device, a spell output based on the spell sequence, a wand position, and a quest. The quest may indicate an order in which one or more second devices are to be activated and one or more spells to activate each of the one or more second devices. Other embodiments may be described and/or claimed.

  • Patent number: 9513703
    Abstract: A gesture-based waking and control system to wake a smartwatch device from a low-power state is described. In one embodiment, the system utilizes a pressure or proximity based wake gesture that is interpretable by low-power sensors. An embodiment of the system can be integrated within a wearable device, such as a smartwatch accessory that can be paired with a mobile electronic device, such as a smartphone. In one embodiment, the wearable device includes a set of low-power sensors that are to detect the wake gesture. In one embodiment, the wake gesture causes the device to enable an additional set of sensors and sensor processing logic to detect more advanced commands or gestures. In one embodiment, the wake gesture enables a display of the wearable device.
