  • Patent number: 11635822
    Abstract: A display device includes an input operation detector that detects an input operation including a gesture operation, a display processor that displays an input operation icon in a first display form when a first gesture operation is detected and displays the input operation icon in a second display form when a second gesture operation is detected, a reception processor that receives a movement operation when the first gesture operation is detected and receives a selection operation when the second gesture operation is detected, and a change processor that, when a third gesture operation is detected, gradually or continuously changes a display form of the input operation icon between the first display form and the second display form.

  • Patent number: 11537211
    Abstract: A display apparatus that includes a movement amount acquirer, a movement amount corrector, and an input processor is provided. The display apparatus acquires a first movement amount of a user's finger in a vertical direction with respect to a virtual operation surface and a second movement amount thereof in a horizontal direction. The display apparatus corrects the first movement amount or the second movement amount when it determines that the input operation is a predetermined operation, and inputs an input operation based on the first movement amount and the second movement amount. When it is determined that the input operation is to move the user's finger in the vertical direction with respect to the virtual operation surface, the display apparatus corrects the second movement amount.

  • Publication number: 20220197395
    Abstract: A display apparatus includes: a movement amount acquirer acquiring a first movement amount of a user's finger in a vertical direction with respect to the virtual operation surface and a second movement amount thereof in a horizontal direction; a movement amount corrector executing correction processing to correct the first movement amount or the second movement amount when it is determined that the input operation is a predetermined operation; and an input processor executing input processing corresponding to the input operation on the basis of the first movement amount and the second movement amount, one of which has been subjected to the correction processing. When it is determined that the input operation is a first operation to move the user's finger in the vertical direction with respect to the virtual operation surface, the movement amount corrector executes the correction processing to reduce or ignore the second movement amount.
