  • Patent number: 11722591
    Abstract: New peripheral device cases and methods of use are provided. In some embodiments, specialized hardware for acquiring personal health data is provided within a smartphone case. In some such embodiments, a case with squeezable sections is provided, configured to monitor pressure applied by a user and record a user's grip strength. In some embodiments, optical sensors are provided which monitor and assess a user's behavior while extrapolating user statuses based on behavior. For example, a new form of transparent pixel array is provided over the screen of a smartphone held within a case, and records both visual data and user input related to the screen, while permitting normal actuation of the smartphone screen through the transparent pixel array. In some embodiments, data is secured and managed within separate computer hardware within a case, and shared with a smartphone held within it, and/or with a network, upon obtaining user consent.

  • Patent number: 11722590
    Abstract: An electronic device display may have an active area with pixels. An optical sensor may be formed under a sensor region in the active area. During operation, ambient light and/or other light associated with the optical sensor may pass through the sensor region. To ensure that the light for the optical sensor can pass through the display, the display may have one or more layers with sensor openings such as a metal layer and a pressure sensitive adhesive layer that attaches the metal layer to the pixels of the display. To help minimize visibility of the openings in the sensor region, the pressure sensitive adhesive layer may be configured to have a reflectivity that matches the appearance of the display in the sensor region to surrounding areas. Undesired light output uniformity can be reduced by ensuring that the substrate material in the display has a low light absorption coefficient.

  • Patent number: 11662861
    Abstract: An information handling system presents visual images at a display that includes a display panel having a capacitive touch detection surface supported by an indium tin oxide layer disposed between a front layer, such as polarizer, and a display cell. To prevent excessive charge build up associated with the capacitive touch detection surface, a conductive ink is applied at the display panel perimeter and interfaced with a ground at the rear side of the display panel. In one example embodiment, a non-conductive ink insulates the conductive ink from the display panel except as desired to transfer excess charge from the indium tin oxide layer. The conductive ink may interface directly with the indium tin oxide layer or indirectly through a second non-conductive ink having greater conductivity than the insulative non-conductive ink.
