Abstract: front page image
(EN)A method, apparatus and computer program product are provided to facilitate the use of a multi-segment wearable accessory. In this regard, methods, apparatus and computer program products are provided for controlling and, in some instances, interacting with a multi-segment wearable accessory. In the context of a method, an orientation of each of a plurality of segments of a multi-segment wearable accessory is determined relative to an axis through the multi-segment wearable accessory, such as by determining an angle of each of the plurality of segments relative to the axis through the multi-segment wearable accessory. A relative ordering of the plurality of segments of the multi-segment wearable accessory may then be determined based upon the orientation of each of the plurality of segments relative to the axis.
(FR)L'invention concerne un procédé, un appareil et un produit-programme d'ordinateur qui facilitent l'utilisation d'un accessoire multi-segment portable. A cet égard, des procédés, un appareil et des produits-programmes informatiques sont fournis pour commander et, dans certains cas, interagir avec un accessoire multi-segment portable. Dans le contexte d'un procédé, une orientation de chaque segment d'une pluralité de segments d'un accessoire multi-segment portable est déterminée par rapport à un axe traversant l'accessoire multi-segment portable, par exemple par la détermination d'un angle de chaque segment de la pluralité de segments par rapport à l'axe traversant l'accessoire multi-segment portable. Un ordonnancement relatif de la pluralité de segments de l'accessoire multi-segment portable peut ensuite être déterminé en fonction de l'orientation de chaque segment de la pluralité de segments par rapport à l'axe.
