  • Patent number: 9507445
    Abstract: A method, apparatus and computer program product are provided to facilitate the display of data in conjunction with an image. In the context of a method, an image is caused to be presented and input is received via a rotatable dial wheel while the image is presented. The method also includes determining data to be presented based upon the input. In this regard, the method modifies the data to be presented in response so the rotation of the dial wheel. Further, the method causes the data that is determined based on the input to be presented concurrent with the image.

  • Patent number: 9429818
    Abstract: An accessory includes a body including a dial having a surface and multiple sets of optically-recognizable identification marks formed as part of the surface. The identification marks for each set are formed to be recognizable by a sensor having a two dimensional array of pixels. An apparatus includes a body comprising a groove having a first surface configured to align with a second surface of an accessory when a portion of the accessory is placed into the groove and a sensor formed in the first surface. The sensor includes a two dimensional array of pixels. An apparatus captures, with the sensor, an image of one of a set of multiple optically-recognizable identification marks formed as part of a surface of the dial, determines from the captured image a specific one of multiple possible accessories interchangeable for use with the apparatus, and performs configuration operation(s) based on the specific accessory.

  • Patent number: 9262120
    Abstract: Techniques for providing a graphical user interface for an audio channel include receiving data that indicates multiple audio contents for audio presentation at a first node. A graphical user interface is formed, which displays a time sequence of the plurality of audio contents for presentation, and which associates with each audio content one or more selectable operations on the audio content. Presentation of the graphical user interface is caused at a second node. In response to causing presentation of the graphical user interface, data is received that indicates an associated operation on audio content based on input from the second node.
