  • Publication number: 20140050398
    Abstract: Adjusting data for photographed images includes detecting a reference image in the data, where the reference image contains a detectable uniformity and adjusting the data according to the reference image. The reference image may be a uniform grid pattern of dots preprinted on paper. A paper type may be determined prior to adjusting the data according to the reference image. The paper type may be determined according to spacing and/or patterns of the dots, and/or layout of page areas covered with dots. Adjusting the data may include removing effects corresponding to a folded corner, a removed corner, an obstructed corner, lens flare spots, and/or a shadow. Positional coordinates of the data may be adjusted by normalizing the grid through a non-linear transformation that eliminates curvature of the grid and/or distortions based on perspective.

  • Publication number: 20130307829
    Abstract: A pen for annotating an electronic screen includes a shell, a tip provided at one end of the shell, and a haptic generator, provided in the shell, that provides vibration of the tip and the shell to emulate resistance of different simulated writing surfaces. The vibration provided by the haptic generator may correspond to friction, abrasion, and flexure of the simulated writing surfaces. The vibration provided by the haptic generator may be based on pre-recorded feedback that is reproduced by the haptic generator. The vibration provided by the haptic generator may be based on a dynamic position of the tip on the electronic screen. The pen may also include an inductor/capacitor, disposed within the shell, that interacts with antenna coils of the electronic screen to provide the dynamic position of the tip on the electronic screen.
