Texas Company Announces its Third US Patent for Tilt-to-Scroll Smartphone Technology
INNOVENTIONS, Inc. has been awarded today US Patent 8,675,019 for its RotoView "tilt-to-scroll" technology for smart scrolling of mobile phone displays. The new patent, titled "View Navigation Guidance System for Hand-Held Devices with Display", is the third US patent in the RotoView technology portfolio. The new patent provides a more efficient technique to control and guide smart scrolling than the traditional scroll bars.
RotoView is the original smart scroll technology for tilt and motion gestures to navigate the displays used in hand held mobile electronic devices. Invented more than 14 years ago by Dr. David Y. Feinstein, the President and CTO of INNOVENTIONS, this technology is now being implemented by the company in popular smart phones using the iOS and Android operating systems.
"For over a decade, we have been actively developing RotoView and demonstrating the benefit of using tilt and movement gestures to navigate smartphone displays," said Feinstein "The new patent enhances RotoView technology, creating an intuitive and user-friendly interface to guide tilt-based scrolling efficiently. It demonstrates our company's ongoing commitment to the development of the 'tilt-to-scroll' view navigation."
In addition to improved view guidance for display scrolling, the new patent covers technology related to "smart color" synthesis algorithms of heads-up-display (HUD) buttons and controls. It further allows auxiliary parameter and command entry by dynamically changing the location of the HUD control.
INNOVENTIONS is looking for a major smartphone company that is interested in a strategic investment in the RotoView technology. A "proof of concept" RotoView app is available from iTunes, with similar apps being developed for use on Android devices and other mobile platforms.
