  • Patent number: 11030438
    Abstract: The present invention is directed to a system that may be incorporated into currently available electronic devices such as laptops, cell-phones and tablets, that help the user to maintain a viewing distance that is safe for the eyes. In order to avoid near-point stress on the eyes which may lead to the onset of myopia and/or accelerate the progression of myopia, especially in children or young adults, the system of the present invention monitors viewing distance and automatically distorts the image and/or text display into a format that is unreadable, for example, through blurring or pixilation, when the device is too close to the viewer. Alternatively, the system may automatically turn off the display when the device is too close and turn the display on when the device is at the proper viewing distance.

  • Patent number: 10976925
    Abstract: A computing device is described that displays a set of graphical elements in a status bar of a graphical user interface. Each graphical element corresponds to a different pending notification. While expanding a notification shade from the status bar, the device displays the graphical elements within an area of the notification shade that is adjacent to a leading edge of the notification shade. Responsive to determining that a particular notification message is newly visible, the device removes, a particular graphical element that corresponds to the particular notification message, and displays the particular graphical element within the particular notification message. In this manner, interaction with the notification area may be more efficient, as during a process of expanding or contracting this area, the user may be informed the underlying state of the set of pending notifications as a whole.

  • Patent number: 10911898
    Abstract: One or more patterns associated with a mobile device are determined. The one or more patterns are determined at least in part by identifying within a set of time information and location information associated with the mobile device a subset comprising successive locations and times associated with a temporary pattern, converting the temporary pattern to be a pattern of the one or more patterns, adding the pattern to a list of detected patterns, generating a reduced set of time information and location information at least in part by removing from the set of time information and location information the subset comprising the successive locations and times, analyzing the reduced set of time information and location information to determine one or more additional patterns. The mobile device can be configured to exhibit a mobile device behavior associated with the determined one or more patterns.

  • Patent number: 10901614
    Abstract: Embodiments of the present invention provide a method and terminal for operating through a touch screen. The method includes: after a transparent virtual keyboard is displayed, receiving a first operation for a display area of the transparent virtual keyboard through a touch screen; determining, according to the first operation, that a target object of the first operation is a page content in the display area of the transparent virtual keyboard; and performing the first operation for the page content in the display area of the transparent virtual keyboard. Therefore, the operation may be directly performed for the determined target object. Therefore, no additional operation is required to perform switching between the transparent virtual keyboard and the page, thereby reducing user operations and improving the user experience.

  • Patent number: 10891007
    Abstract: Example systems and methods transfer data between a first device and a second device. Embodiments generate, using an output circuit, an analog signal based on a data signal for an application associated with the first device and the second device. Embodiments transmit the data signal over an interface between a processor of the first device and a processor of the second device by capacitively coupling the analog signal through a capacitor formed by at least one sensor electrode, of a touchscreen, of the first device and a conductor of the second device.
