Virtual Touchpad Technology


Virtual Touchpad is our patented
smartwatch user interface. It overcomes the limitation of the watch’s
small screen with a larger touchpad area, and allows the user to perform complex touch
gestures on the back of their hand without obstructing the watch display. Cameras at the side of the watch
capture images of the fingers as well as the skin area assigned
for the virtual touchpad. Touch gestures are distinguished from
hovering gestures when the camera detects correlated movements of artifacts such
as blood vessels on the user’s skin. Here is a hovering gesture. Notice the skin does not move
in tandem with the finger. Here is a dragging touch gesture. Notice the skin’s artifacts move along with the finger. Standard zoom and pan gestures are
performed with ease. The finger drag gesture does not
obstruct the screen. Tapping the corresponding location of an icon on the virtual touchpad selects the icon. The Virtual Touchpad is great for text entry. It is much easier to scribble text on the larger area of the user’s hand compared to writing directly on the small screen. The camera can easily capture a
smiley and other emojis. Elevate your smart watch design to the next level with INNOVENTIONS Virtual Touchpad technology. Please contact INNOVENTIONS for more information.
