  • Patent number: 9696821
    Abstract: According to one embodiment, a data input system includes an active stylus and an apparatus. The active stylus switches a mode from a first mode in which the signal is output with a first transmission interval to a second mode in which the signal is output with a second transmission interval longer than the first transmission interval when a pressure in a handwriting input operation is not detected for more than a first period. The apparatus displays an object indicative of a position pointed to by the active stylus based on the signal. The apparatus maintains, when the active stylus is in the second mode, a display state of the object displayed on the basis of the signal output at a first timing until the signal is output at a second timing following the first timing.

  • Publication number: 20150160851
    Abstract: According to one embodiment, an electronic device is provided with a first detection module, a second detection module and a rendering module. The first detection module detects the region of a detection surface that contacts an indicator. The second module detects, using a method different from a method of the first detection module, a pressure corresponding to a load that occurs when the indicator contacts the detection surface. The rendering module renders the shape of the region, detected by the first detection module, on the screen of a display with a concentration corresponding to the pressure detected by the second detection module.
