Title
(EN) INPUT UNIT, METHOD FOR USING THE SAME AND INPUT SYSTEM
(FR) UNITE D'ENTREE, PROCEDE D'UTILISATION ASSOCIE ET SYSTEME D'ENTREE
Abstract
(EN)
An input unit has a mouse function and at least one inputting function. The input unit comprises image-recording means (8) which record images. These images are used for providing both the mouse function and the inputting function. The images are processed in the input unit or in some other unit.
(FR)
Cette unité d'entrée possède une fonction souris et au moins une fonction entrée, et elle comprend des moyens d'enregistrement (8) d'images, lesquels enregistrent des images. Ces images sont utilisées à la fois pour constituer la fonction souris et la fonction entrée et elles sont traitées dans l'unité d'entrée ou dans une autre unité.
