  • Publication number: 20070279391
    Abstract: A keypad having a virtual floating image that appears to a user to be in a plane other than the apparent plane of the keypad surface. More particularly, the indicia on the keypad appear to float above or below the surface of the device. The keypad can be, for example, the keypad on a cell phone. For such an application there would be more than one array of indicia present on the keypad. For example, there might be ten arrays of indicia, which provide the numerals from 0 to 9 and two more arrays to provide virtual images of the * and # keys. In some embodiments, the keypad is integrated with an illumination source that light up the indicia. The present disclosure also provides a method of manufacturing a key pad with a virtual floating image.

  • Publication number: 20060262555
    Abstract: Direct-lit backlights and associated methods are disclosed in which an array of elongated light sources is placed in a cavity between a diffuser plate and a back reflector. The back reflector is a specular reflector that can have a divergence half-angle of about 10 degrees or less. The diffuser plate can be of the type that has uniform diffusing properties over its useful area. Appropriate placement of the diffuser plate, light sources, and back reflector can yield a backlight having exceptional thinness, brightness uniformity, and average brightness.
