Title
(EN) METHODS AND SYSTEMS FOR INTERACTIVE USER INTERFACE OBJECTS
(FR) PROCÉDÉS ET SYSTÈMES POUR OBJETS D'INTERFACE UTILISATEUR INTERACTIFS
Abstract
(EN) Methods and systems for interactive user interface objects are provided. The user interface allows for users to manipulate different objects represented by icons within a user interface, such as that of an iPhone or iPad or other touch screen devices. Users may bump objects together, flick one object towards another, bump an object against the edge of a screen, flick an object towards a certain area such as a dock, or otherwise manipulate the objects. The user's actions or manipulations of objects may result in an action by the objects or may have no effect. Depending on the compatibility of objects, the objects may be neutral towards one another, may attract each other, or may repel. The objects that attract may share content or communicate with each other via a one-time interaction, or may establish links or connections with each other that enable longer term communication or broadcasts that occur upon predetermined triggers.
(FR) L'invention concerne des procédés et des systèmes pour objets d'interface utilisateur interactifs. L'interface utilisateur permet à des utilisateurs de manipuler différents objets représentés par des icônes dans une interface utilisateur telle que celle d'un Iphone ou d'un Ipad ou d'autres dispositifs à écran tactile. Les utilisateurs peuvent faire entrer en collision les objets, glisser un objet vers un autre, faire entrer en collision un objet contre le bord d'un écran, glisser un objet vers une certaine zone telle qu'un dock ou manipuler d'une autre manière les objets. Les actions de manipulation d'objets faites par l'utilisateur peuvent conduire à une action effectuée par les objets ou peuvent n'avoir aucun effet. Selon la compatibilité des objets, ceux-ci peuvent être neutres vis-à-vis d'un autre objet, peuvent s'attirer mutuellement, ou peuvent se repousser. Les objets qui s'attirent peuvent partager un contenu ou communiquer les uns avec les autres via une interaction unique, ou peuvent établir des liens ou des connexions les uns avec les autres pour permettre une communication ou des diffusions à plus long terme pouvant se produire lors d'événements déclencheurs prédéterminés.
