Title
(EN) Supplementing a touch input mechanism with fingerprint detection
Abstract
(EN)

A device and related methods, including a display and a display surface, are provided. The device includes logic configured to detect touch events received via the display surface. The display is coupled to a remote computing functionality that is configured to store shared work space information in a data store associated with the remote computing functionality to support collaborative tasks performed by participants in an interaction session. The device further includes logic configured to receive touch events and interpret the touch events as a request to drag an object, select a menu option, or display a web page. The device further includes logic configured to receive requests, not via the display surface of the display, but from user devices different from the display. Such requests can include requests to display an object on the display surface or execute an application.
