20130127911DIAL-BASED USER INTERFACES - Concepts and technologies are described herein for dial-based user interfaces. In accordance with the concepts and technologies disclosed herein, a user device presents a dial-based user interface. The dial-based user interface can be configured with user interface controls associated with various options. In response to detecting selection of a user interface control associated with an option having a numeric value, the user device can modify the dial-based user interface to present a numeric adjustment control that can be interfaced with by a user to adjust the numeric value associated with the option. The dial-based user interface also can be modified to show selected options, option states, option values, option selection history, and/or other information.05-23-2013
20130135350SLANT AND OVERLAYING GRAPHICAL KEYBOARD - A slant keyboard module detects initiation of an application that accepts textual input in a mobile device. The slant keyboard module receives angle of orientation data from one or more orientation instruments in the mobile device. The slant keyboard module determines that the angle of orientation data indicates a slant angle of orientation. The slant keyboard module displays a graphical keyboard with a short-term text field at a slant angle of display corresponding to the slant angle of orientation. The slant keyboard module also displays a short-term text field at the slant angle of display. The short-term text field displays a limited number of most recent input characters to the graphical keyboard.05-30-2013
20110221779COMMUNICATION SYSTEM AND RECEIVER - A transmitter that outputs an image signal for displaying a first image and outputs an image signal of a synthesized image made of the reversal image of the first image and a second image. A display apparatus, based on the image signals output from the transmitter, displays the first image and the synthesized image with circular polarizations having different senses of rotation from each other. A receiver includes a circular polarization selecting and transmitting means that separates the first image and the synthesized image displayed on the display apparatus, based on the sense of rotation of the circular polarization, and selectively allows the images to pass therethrough, so as to be able to photograph the first image displayed on the display apparatus.09-15-2011
20110234636METHOD AND INTEGRATED CIRCUIT FOR IMAGE MANIPULATION - A method and integrated circuit for manipulating two dimensional images. The method and integrated circuit use an on-chip memory buffer comprising four memory elements, and accessed as a rectangle of 4 times an integer number of bytes by a number of lines depending on the image resolution.09-29-2011
20130155113IMAGE DISPLAY DEVICE AND MOBILE DEVICE - A projection display device includes an image generating part which generates an image to be displayed on a predetermined image display surface; a circuit part which operates the image generating part based on an image signal; an image acquiring part which acquires an image signal to be outputted from a mobile device; a tilt acquiring part which acquires, from the mobile device, a tilt signal indicating a tilt angle of a display surface of the mobile device with respect to a reference state; and screen state changing part which changes a state of a screen to be displayed on the image display surface in accordance with the tilt signal. The screen state changing part inclines, on the image display surface, an image based on the image signal acquired by the image acquiring part, based on the tilt signal in accordance with the inclination of the display surface.06-20-2013
20130182014MOBILE TERMINAL AND CONTROL METHOD THEREOF - A mobile terminal for outputting an image and a control method thereof are provided. The mobile terminal includes a terminal main body, a display unit disposed on a front surface of the main body and configured to display an image, a movement sensor mounted in the main body and configured to sense a movement of the main body, a camera sensor activated in response to a movement of the main body, and a controller configured to control a display direction of the image according to a user location sensed by the camera sensor.07-18-2013
20130187955INTRA-OPERATIVE IMAGE PRESENTATION ADAPTED TO VIEWING DIRECTION - The invention relates to an intra-operative image presentation method, in which an image representation (07-25-2013
20130201218SHOWING CALENDAR EVENTS NOT VISIBLE ON SCREEN - Methods, systems, and graphical user interfaces are provided for showing calendar events that are not visible on screen. Event objects are shown when an event is within a viewable time range, but the event object is partially drawn on screen (e.g. clipped) when the event is not within a viewable time range. The displayed parts of event objects indicating off-screen event can stack on top of each other to provide information about a number of off-screen events for a particular day. With the events clipped and stacked, a user has a visual indicator that there are events off screen for a particular day. As a user scrolls to the time of the event, the event can completely reveals itself.08-08-2013
20120081398SMARTPAD SPLIT SCREEN - A multi-display device is adapted to be dockable or otherwise associatable with an additional device. In accordance with one exemplary embodiment, the multi-display device is dockable with a smartpad. The exemplary smartpad can include a screen, a touch sensitive display, a configurable area, a gesture capture region(s) and a camera. The smartpad can also include a port adapted to receive the device. The exemplary smartpad is able to cooperate with the device such that information displayable on the device is also displayable on the smartpad. Furthermore, any one or more of the functions on the device are extendable to the smartpad, with the smartpad capable of acting as an input/output interface or extension of the smartpad.
