Title (EN) NAVIGATION APPROACHES FOR MULTI-DIMENSIONAL INPUT
(FR) CONCEPTIONS DE NAVIGATION POUR ENTRÉE MULTIDIMENSIONNELLE
Abstract:
(EN) Multi-dimensional gesture input to a computing device can be improved by providing a mechanism to lock or reduce the effects of motion in unintended directions. In one example, a user can navigate in two dimensions, then provide a selection action through motion in a third dimension. If a computing device analyzing the gesture is able to detect the selection action, the device can limit motion outside the corresponding third dimension in order to ensure that the proper selection action is performed. Various thresholds, values, or motions can be used to limit motion in one or more axes for any appropriate purpose as discussed herein.
(FR) L'invention concerne une entrée gestuelle multidimensionnelle sur un dispositif informatique qui peut être améliorée au moyen d'un mécanisme permettant de bloquer ou de limiter les effets de mouvement dans des directions non désirées. Selon un exemple, un utilisateur peut naviguer dans deux dimensions, puis effectuer une action de sélection par l'intermédiaire d'un mouvement en trois dimensions. Si un dispositif informatique analysant le geste peut détecter l'action de sélection, le dispositif peut limiter un mouvement extérieur à la troisième dimension correspondante afin d'assurer que l'action de sélection appropriée est exécutée. On peut utiliser des seuils, des valeurs et des mouvements variés pour limiter un mouvement suivant un ou plusieurs axes à des fins quelconques appropriées.
