Title: METHODS AND APPARATUS FOR PROVIDING FEEDBACK FROM AN ELECTRONIC DEVICE
Abstract:
An electronic device (100), which can be a wearable electronic device, tablet electronic device, or other type of device, includes a user interface (202) operable to detect gesture input (871). A visible output (204), which can be proximately disposed with the user interface, provides visible feedback with which a user can determine that the input was received. A control circuit (205) is operable in some embodiments to control the output of the visible output to mimic the gesture input. Audible feedback and tactile feedback can be used in addition to the visible feedback.
