Title: 3D TOUCH BASED USER INTERFACE VALUE PICKERS
Abstract:
Electronic devices that include a force sensor input and input user interface elements are described. The force sensors may be located to detect force on the display of the electronic device. The force sensor, alone or in combination with one or more other sensors such as capacitive touch sensors, allows for interaction with the user interface input on the device. By using a hold detection logic with a pressure level sensitive sensor, user interface elements can be manipulated or values can be assigned to input elements.
