Title (EN) METHOD AND APPARATUS FOR INTERFACING WITH INTELLIGENT THREE-DIMENSIONAL COMPONENTS
(FR) PROCEDE ET DISPOSITIF PERMETTANT L'INTERFAÇAGE AVEC DES COMPOSANTS TRIDIMENSIONNELS INTELLIGENTS
Abstract: front page image
(EN)A method of interfacing with a three-dimensional object that is displayed includes the steps of defining the three-dimensional object as a component with a component interface (figure 5, element 350), displaying the component interface (figure 5, element 360) and interfacing with the three-dimensional object through the component interface (figure 5, element 370). The component intrinsically contains an intelligent content. The present invention also provides for an apparatus with means for accomplishing the steps of the present invention as well as a computer system and computer readable medium implementing the method of the present invention.
(FR)L'invention concerne un procédé permettant l'interfaçage avec un objet tridimensionnel affiché, qui comprend une étape de définition dudit objet 3D en tant que composant doté d'une interface (figure 5, élément 350), une étape d'affichage de l'interface dudit composant (figure 5, élément 360) et une étape d'interfaçage avec ledit objet 3D au moyen de ladite interface (figure 5, élément 370). Le composant renferme de manière intrinsèque un contenu intelligent. L'invention concerne également un dispositif qui comporte un moyen permettant de réaliser les étapes de la présente invention, ainsi qu'un système informatique et un support lisible par un ordinateur, qui permettent de mettre en oeuvre le procédé ci-dessus.
