Title: DISPLAY INPUT DEVICE
Abstract:
In this display input device, a panel-shaped image-forming optical element (micro mirror array) is disposed on the top surface of a casing such as a case or a housing, a light source such as an LED is disposed in the periphery of the image-forming optical element so as to illuminate an input body (such as a hand or finger) that is above the casing, a mounting table is disposed on a predetermined position on the bottom part of the casing corresponding to the image-forming optical element in a manner such that the mounting table is tilted at a predetermined angle (α) relative to the bottom surface of the image-forming optical element, and an optical detection means such as a camera is disposed on a position at which it is possible to detect an input body (such as a hand or finger) located in the periphery of a spatial image (I'). As a consequence, it is possible to naturally carry out an input operation in the periphery of the spatial image by using an input body such as the hand or finger of an operator without having to be conscious about a device.
