Title (EN) SYSTEMS FOR MODIFYING FINGER SENSATIONS DURING FINGER PRESS INPUT EVENTS
(FR) SYSTÈMES DE MODIFICATION DE SENSATIONS DE DOIGT PENDANT DES ÉVÉNEMENTS D'ENTRÉE DE PRESSION DE DOIGT
Abstract:
(EN) A user may provide finger press input to a surface such as a touch sensitive input surface. The input surface may be formed from a two-dimensional touch sensor overlapping a display of an electronic device. The electronic device and an associated device such as a finger-mounted device may form a system for gathering the finger press input from the user. A sensor may be used in monitoring when the finger-mounted device and a user's finger in the device approach the input surface of the electronic device. In response to detection of the finger near the input surface, actuators in the finger-mounted device may squeeze the finger inwardly to cause a finger pad on the finger to protrude outwardly towards the input surface, thereby softening impact between the finger and the input surface. The electronic device may also have an array of components to repel the finger-mounted device.
(FR) Un utilisateur peut fournir une entrée de pression de doigt à une surface telle qu'une surface d'entrée tactile. La surface d'entrée peut être formée à partir d'un capteur tactile bidimensionnel chevauchant un affichage d'un dispositif électronique. Le dispositif électronique et un dispositif associé tel qu'un dispositif monté sur un doigt peuvent former un système pour rassembler l'entrée de pression de doigt de l'utilisateur. Un capteur peut être utilisé pour surveiller lorsque le dispositif monté sur le doigt et le doigt d'un utilisateur dans le dispositif s'approchent de la surface d'entrée du dispositif électronique. Lorsqu'il est détecté que le doigt est à proximité de la surface d'entrée, des actionneurs dans le dispositif monté sur le doigt peuvent presser le doigt vers l'intérieur pour amener un tampon de doigt sur le doigt à faire saillie vers l'extérieur en direction de la surface d'entrée, ce qui permet d'adoucir l'impact entre le doigt et la surface d'entrée. Le dispositif électronique peut également avoir un réseau de composants pour repousser le dispositif monté sur le doigt.
