Title (EN) METHODS AND APPARATUS FOR COMPUTER INTERFACE
(FR) PROCÉDÉS ET APPAREIL POUR INTERFACE ORDINATEUR
Abstract:
(EN) A physical user interface is provided for a microprocessor device that runs an operating system. The interface has an array of sensors located below a workspace having a housing. The workspace divided into regions that are visible to a user, each region signifying a command to or an action performed by the operating system. Counters are provided with stored information such that the counter can be interpreted by the physical user interface so as to indicate a location of the counter as well as the stored information. The information may be directly or indirectly indicative of a request for a URL.
(FR) L’invention concerne une interface utilisateur physique destinée à un dispositif de microprocesseur qui exécute un système d’exploitation. L’interface est dotée d’un réseau de capteurs situé sous l’espace de travail assorti d’un boîtier. L’espace de travail est divisé en zones visibles à l’utilisateur, chaque zone signifiant une commande ou une action exécutée par le système d’exploitation. Des compteurs contenant l’information stockée sont compris dans l’invention de sorte que le compteur peut être interprété par l’interface utilisateur physique de manière à indiquer un emplacement du compteur ainsi que l’information stockée. L’information peut être indicative, directement ou indirectement, d’une demande de URL.
