  • Patent number: 11003304
    Abstract: An information display terminal includes a first operation information acquiring unit that acquires first operation information including first location information on a display screen via a touch panel including a contact detection surface and the display screen. A three-dimensional coordinate space is projected onto the display screen. An object is arranged within the three-dimensional coordinate space on the basis of three-dimensional coordinate information of the object. The information display terminal also includes a second operation information acquiring unit that acquires second operation information including second location information on the display screen via a contact detection surface provided on a surface on a side opposite to the display screen.
