  • Patent number: 11429203
    Abstract: Methods and systems are provided that are directed to automatically adjusting a user interface based on tilt position of a digital drawing board. The digital drawing board has a tiltable screen with a sensor. The tiltable screen may be fixed in a stable tilt position. A sensor is used to determine that the digital drawing board has a first tilt position. The digital drawing board displays a first user interface associated with the first tilt position. The first user interface may be associated with a first use mode. The first user interface may also be based on an application running on the digital drawing board. When the sensor senses that the digital drawing board has moved from the first tilt position to a second tilt position, it automatically displays a second user interface associated with a second tilt position. The second user interface has different functionality than the first user interface.

  • Patent number: 11143867
    Abstract: Augmented reality eyewear devices allow users to experience a version of our “real” physical world augmented with virtual objects. Augmented reality eyewear may present a user with a graphical user interface that appears to be in the airspace directly in front of the user thereby encouraging the user to interact with virtual objects in socially undesirable ways, such as by making sweeping hand gestures in the airspace in front of the user. Anchoring various input mechanisms or the graphical user interface of an augmented reality eyewear application to a wristwatch may allow a user to interact with an augmented reality eyewear device in a more socially acceptable manner. Combining the displays of a smartwatch and an augmented reality eyewear device into a single graphical user interface may provide enhanced display function and more responsive gestural input.

  • Patent number: 10901469
    Abstract: A touch module includes a casing, a touchpad, a supporting plate and a rotatable mechanism. The touchpad is installed in a first accommodation structure of the casing. The rotatable mechanism is pivotally coupled to a second accommodation structure of the casing. The supporting plate is movably installed on the casing, and combined with the touchpad. The second accommodation structure is extended from a specified side of the first accommodation structure. There is a horizontal gap between a lateral edge of the touchpad and an inner wall of the first accommodation structure corresponding to the specified side. While the touchpad is moved through the horizontal gap, a linking terminal of the rotatable mechanism is pushed by the touchpad or the touchpad is moved away from the linking terminal. Consequently, a stopping terminal of the rotatable mechanism is correspondingly inserted into or detached from the vertical gap.

  • Patent number: 10539985
    Abstract: A rack-mountable computer system directs separate portions of a cooling airflow from an inlet air plenum in the computer system interior through separate air passages to remove heat from separate portions of a set of heat-producing components. The air passages can preclude a portion of cooling airflow removing heat from a component from being preheated by another component. Plenums and air passages can be established through the arrangement of components in the interior. Components can be arranged in progressive offsets throughout the depth of the interior to vary plenum flow area throughout the depth, which can progressively impede and redirect airflow through the inlet plenum into the air passages. Arrangements can include an angled row, a staggered configuration, etc. The computer system can include a chassis which can translate, while maintaining operation of hot-pluggable electronic components coupled throughout the depth, to enable swapping of hot-pluggable electronic components throughout the interior.
