  • Patent number: 7567238
    Abstract: A medical treatment support system has operations A to G on a display screen to easily handle respective data on a sheet. Operation A facilitates the browsing of a large amount of data. Operations B and C allow the user to easily copy and move data. Operation D is a scale function to facilitate measurement. Using operation E, the operator can easily divide an area into segments only by drawing a horizontal line. Operation F is used to change a display angle of image data displayed on the screen. Operation G allows the user to browse respective data classified for each sheet label. The new functions of the single-unit input/output pen-tablet device can be intuitively operated by a user not versed in the functions. This consequently mitigates the load of complex input operation which interrupts thinking of the user and which hinders diagnosis mitigated in medical treatment.

  • Publication number: 20090040224
    Abstract: In a computer 20 with a three-dimensional shape conversion program installed therein, a coordinate processing unit 21 obtains two-dimensional coordinate data of a contour stroke SS input through the user's operation of a mouse 50 or another suitable input unit. A 2D/3D modeling unit 22 performs two-dimensional modeling based on the obtained two-dimensional coordinate data and thereby generates two-dimensional model data regarding a two-dimensional pattern, while performing three-dimensional modeling based on the generated two-dimensional model data and generates three-dimensional model data regarding a three-dimensional shape obtained by expanding the two-dimensional pattern. A 2D model data regulator 23 adjusts the two-dimensional model data to make a corresponding contour of the three-dimensional shape defined by the three-dimensional model data substantially consistent with the input contour stroke SS.

  • Patent number: 6886061
    Abstract: Disclosed is an electronic record system which dispenses with complicated operations using a menu and a button and handwriting input operation like paper writing can be achieved. A system is established and is provided with: an input/output unit device capable of inputting/outputting data by the direct writing on a display screen with a pen; and a control/arithmetic device connected to the input/output unit device and reflecting the data inputted on the display screen to the screen. In this system, an electronic record in the form of strip-shaped sheet with an infinite length extending in the longitudinal direction is displayed, data is directly inputted from the display screen as a stroke data, the inputted characters are converted into the character data by the use of a character recognition engine and the converted data is used as data format available in a secondary use such as a data search, and various functions are driven by a predetermined pen operation.

  • Publication number: 20040160458
    Abstract: Speed-dependent automatic zooming through content such as documents and images is disclosed. In one embodiment, a method first receives an input, such as a user input on an input device, like a joystick, a mouse, a trackball, or other pointing device. The input is mapped to either speed of navigation through a content space, or scale of the content space while being navigated. The other of speed or scale to which the input was not mapped is then determined, based on the relationship that scale times speed equals a constant. The content space is then navigated, based on the speed or scale mapped from the input, and the scale or speed determined.

  • Patent number: 6747680
    Abstract: The present invention relates to a system and method for navigating through a content or document in a display, wherein as the rate of such navigation increases, the scale of the document decreases. Thus, more of the document is viewable in the display. One method involves receiving an input, such as a user input on an input device which may include a joystick, a mouse, a trackball, or other pointing device. The input is mapped to either a speed of navigation through a content space or scale of the content space while being navigated. The other of speed or scale to which the output was not mapped is determined according to the relationship that scale multiplied by speed equals a constant value. The content space is subsequently navigated based on the speed or scale mapped from the input and the scale or speed is determined.

  • Patent number: 6584479
    Abstract: A primary body of data is displayable on a screen and a supporting body of data is relatable to an annotation tag present in the primary body of textual data. An annotation tag having a predetermined size in the primary body of data is selected, and negotiations ensue between the primary body of data and the supporting body to determine a space into which the supporting body of data can be fitted while maintaining a substantially unobstructed view of the primary body of data. Generally, this negotiated space is sized larger than the original predetermined size of the annotation tag. An animation sequence is used to position the supporting body of data in the negotiated space.

  • Patent number: 6549201
    Abstract: A sketching interface for quickly and easily designing freeform models such as stuffed animals and other rotund objects. The user draws several 2D freeform strokes interactively on the screen and the system automatically constructs plausible 3D polygonal surfaces. The system supports several modeling operations, including the operation to construct a 3D polygonal surface from a 2D silhouette drawn by the user: it inflates the region surrounded by the silhouette making wide areas fat, and narrow areas thin. The system is implemented as a Java(tm) program, and the mesh construction is done in real-time on a standard PC. An informal user study showed that a first-time user typically masters the operations within 10 minutes, and can construct interesting 3D models within minutes.

  • Patent number: 6459442
    Abstract: A freeform display editing system groups freeform strokes into one or more segments on a display. Each segment in the system defines a region of the display that includes a collection of strokes. Multiple behaviors can be dynamically attached or removed from any given segment, even after a segment has been created and filled with strokes. Each behavior provides a task-specific application to the segment to which it is attached. Segments de-couple interpretations of input data from behaviors to provide temporal multiplexing of task-specific applications. Advantageously, data associated with a segment can be composed at the same time by different behaviors.
