  • Publication number: 20190098160
    Abstract: An image forming apparatus includes an image display that displays an image. In response to determining both that the image display is present in a detected user's gaze direction and that a distance between the user and the image display is shorter than a predetermined distance, the apparatus performs a change process on the image. After performing the change process, the apparatus determines whether or not the distance between the user and the image display is equal to or greater than the predetermined distance, and if so, returns the image back to a state prior to the change process.

  • Publication number: 20170346978
    Abstract: A wake-up control device includes a detector and a wake-up unit. When an apparatus is in a power-saving state in which power consumption is lower than power consumption in a normal state, the detector detects a hand or finger approaching an operation unit operated in order to perform a wake-up operation of changing a state of the apparatus from the power-saving state to the normal state. In the case where the apparatus is in the power-saving state, if the detector detects a hand or finger approaching the operation unit, even when the operation unit has not been operated, the wake-up unit performs a wake-up operation of changing the state of the apparatus from the power-saving state to the normal state.

  • Patent number: 9794446
    Abstract: An information processing apparatus is provided with a specifying unit, an output control unit, and an event detecting unit. The specifying unit specifies an operator who inputs an output request for outputting an output object. The output control unit controls an output process in accordance with the output request. The event detecting unit detects an event having a possibility that the operator stops immediate output of the output request. Even in a case where the output control unit is instructed from the operator to perform an immediate output process of the output request when the operator is specified and where the operator is specified, the output control unit stops the immediate output process of the output request in a case where the event detecting unit detects the event.
