Title (EN) ADJUSTABLE DIGITAL ERASER
(FR) EFFACEUR NUMÉRIQUE RÉGLABLE
Abstract:
(EN) The structure and devices described herein provide an improved digital eraser for a stylus. A stylus may have an eraser end that transmits an erase signal from an eraser antenna. A cover houses the eraser antenna and can be configured with varying geometry to selectively position the eraser antenna closer to, or further away from, a digitizer screen of a computing device when the cover is in contact with the digitizer screen. The computing device can detect the signal strength of the erase signal and/or the contact area between the cover and the digitizer screen and vary one or more of the width, area, or opacity of the erase function. The computing device can further, based upon the strength of the signal and/or the contact area between the cover and the digitizer screen, determine the tilt and/or the rotation of the stylus.
(FR) La structure et les dispositifs de la présente invention fournissent un effaceur numérique amélioré pour un stylet. Un stylet peut avoir une extrémité effaceur qui transmet un signal d'effacement à partir d'une antenne effaceur. Un couvercle loge l'antenne effaceur et peut être configuré avec une géométrie variable pour positionner sélectivement l'antenne effaceur plus près, ou plus loin d'un écran de numérisation d'un dispositif informatique lorsque le couvercle est en contact avec l'écran de numérisation. Le dispositif informatique peut détecter l'intensité de signal d'effacement et/ou la zone de contact entre le couvercle et l'écran numériseur et faire varier une ou plusieurs de la largeur, la zone, ou l'opacité de la fonction d'effacement. Le dispositif informatique peut en outre, sur la base de l'intensité du signal et/ou de la zone de contact entre le couvercle et l'écran numériseur, déterminer l'inclinaison et/ou la rotation du stylet.
