Title: (EN) Visually Placing Virtual Control Buttons on a Computing Device Based on Grip Profile
Abstract: front page image
(EN)

Various embodiments provide virtual control buttons on a computing device, such as a mobile device, e.g. a smart phone, to produce a computing. The computing device includes a housing component defined by a top edge, a bottom edge, a left edge and a right edge. A touchscreen display defines at least a front surface of the housing component and wraps around at least one edge of the housing component to define at least portions of the one edge. The computing device is configured to receive touch input corresponding to a user gripping the device on the at least one edge. A grip profile is identified and corresponds to placement of a user's digits on the at least one edge. Responsive to identifying the grip profile, at least one virtual control button is visually placed on the touchscreen display based, at least in part, on the grip profile.
