  • Patent number: 10936110
    Abstract: A touchscreen display device may include a touchscreen display and a controller. The controller may receive a display map of the touchscreen display dividing the touchscreen display into two or more display zones and defining offset angles for each of the two or more display zones. The controller may further detect a touch input at a touch point on the touchscreen display. The controller may further display a cursor comprising graphical objects on the touchscreen display to visualize a selection point separated from the touch point by an offset distance from the touch point and oriented at an offset angle defined by the cursor display map. The controller may further dynamically update the offset angle of the cursor based on the cursor display map when the touch point enters any of the two or more display zones.
