Abstract
(EN)
[Problem] For a remote control with no need to display multiple function buttons on the touch surface, or when the remote control is to be structured in a simple configuration, the cost of providing complex display apparatus such as that in touch panels is unreasonable. However, without use of a touch panel, it is not possible to verify on the touch surface the response of the touch remote control to finger action. [Solution] This invention provides a solution to this problem by way of a touch remote control comprising a sensor unit that detects finger action on the touch surface, multiple light point display units disposed on the touch surface, and a light emission control unit that controls the emission of light from the light points of the light point display units in response to the finger action detected by the sensor unit.

La présente invention vise à résoudre le problème que pose le coût disproportionné de réalisation d'un appareil d'affichage complexe, tel que ceux équipant les écrans tactiles, dans le cas de télécommandes, qui ne demandent pas l'affichage de plusieurs touches de fonction sur la surface tactile, ou dont la structure de la télécommande doit conserver une configuration simple. Toutefois, sans utiliser d'écran tactile, il est impossible de vérifier sur la surface tactile la réaction de la télécommande à l'action des doigts. Pour résoudre ce problème, l'invention propose une télécommande tactile comprenant: un bloc détecteur, qui détecte l'action des doigts sur la surface tactile; un bloc afficheur à plusieurs points lumineux, qui est disposé sur la surface tactile; et un contrôleur d'émission lumineuse, qui commande l'émission de lumière à partir des points lumineux du bloc afficheur à points lumineux en réaction à la détection, par le bloc détecteur, d'une action des doigts.

【課題】タッチ面上において複数の機能ボタンを表示する必要がないリモコンや、簡易的な構成にしたいリモコンにまでタッチパネルのような複雑な表示機構を設けることはコスト的に不合理であった。一方、タッチパネルを設けないと、タッチ面において行われた指の動作に対するタッチリモコンの反応をタッチ面上にて確認することができないという問題もあった。 【解決手段】以上の課題を解決するために、本発明は、タッチ面での指の動作を検知する検知部と、タッチ面に配置される複数の光点表示部と、検知部で検知した指の動作に応じて光点表示部の光点の発光を制御する発光制御部と、からなるタッチリモコンを提案する。
