Top Computer Technology Patent – Interactive video display system – US7834846

U.S. Patent 7834846 was awarded to on 2010-11-16 and describes a “Interactive video display system.” This patent has been cited 379 times by other U.S. patents which places it in the top 500 cited patents since 2010 according to our law firm research, and makes it of the most innovative computer technology patents in the field of electrical engineering. The abstract states:

A device allows easy and unencumbered interaction between a person and a computer display system using the person’s (or another object’s) movement and position as input to the computer. In some configurations, the display can be projected around the user so that that the person’s actions are displayed around them. The video camera and projector operate on different wavelengths so that they do not interfere with each other. Uses for such a device include, but are not limited to, interactive lighting effects for people at clubs or events, interactive advertising displays, etc. Computer-generated characters and virtual objects can be made to react to the movements of passers-by, generate interactive ambient lighting for social spaces such as restaurants, lobbies and parks, video game systems and create interactive information spaces and art installations. Patterned illumination and brightness and gradient processing can be used to improve the ability to detect an object against a background of video images. Link: U.S. Patent 7834846

Top Computer Technology Patent – Gesture recognition simulation system and method – US7701439

U.S. Patent 7701439 was awarded to Northrop Grumman Corporation on 2010-04-20 and describes a “Gesture recognition simulation system and method.” This patent has been cited 325 times by other U.S. patents which places it in the top 500 cited patents since 2010 according to our law firm research, and makes it of the most innovative computer technology patents in the field of electrical engineering. The abstract states:

A gesture recognition simulation system and method is provided. In one embodiment, a gesture recognition simulation system includes a three-dimensional display system that displays a three-dimensional image of at least one simulated object having at least one functional component. A gesture recognition interface system is configured to receive an input gesture associated with a sensorless input object from a user. The gesture recognition simulation system further comprises a simulation application controller configured to match a given input gesture with a predefined action associated with the at least one functional component. The simulation application controller could invoke the three dimensional display system to display a simulated action on at least a portion of the at least one simulated object associated an input gesture and a predefined action match.

Top Computer Technology Patent – Double-sided touch-sensitive panel with shield and drive combined layer – US7920129

U.S. Patent 7920129 was awarded to Apple Inc. on 2011-04-05 and describes a “Double-sided touch-sensitive panel with shield and drive combined layer.” This patent has been cited 364 times by other U.S. patents which places it in the top 500 cited patents since 2010 according to our law firm research, and makes it of the most innovative computer technology patents in the field of electrical engineering. The abstract states:

A multi-touch capacitive touch sensor panel can be created using a substrate with column and row traces formed on either side of the substrate. To shield the column (sense) traces from the effects of capacitive coupling from a modulated Vcom layer in an adjacent liquid crystal display (LCD) or any source of capacitive coupling, the row traces can be widened to shield the column traces, and the row traces can be placed closer to the LCD. In particular, the rows can be widened so that there is spacing of about 30 microns between adjacent row traces. In this manner, the row traces can serve the dual functions of driving the touch sensor panel, and also the function of shielding the more sensitive column (sense) traces from the effects of capacitive coupling. Link: U.S. Patent 7920129

This patent was originally filed on 2007-01-03 which gives it a processing time of 1553 days, compared to an average processing time of 1638 in the field. Apple Inc. has 15027 total patents. The first named inventor is Steven Hotelling of Los Gatos, CA. The primary examiner was Quan-Zhen Wang.

Top Computer Technology Patent – Integrated in-plane switching display and touch sensor – US8040326

U.S. Patent 8040326 was awarded to Apple Inc. on 2011-10-18 and describes a “Integrated in-plane switching display and touch sensor.” This patent has been cited 278 times by other U.S. patents which places it in the top 500 cited patents since 2010 according to our law firm research, and makes it of the most innovative computer technology patents in the field of electrical engineering. The abstract states:

This relates to adding multi-touch functionality to a display without the need of a separate multi-touch panel or layer overlaying the display. Instead, embodiments of the invention can advantageously utilize existing display circuitry to provide multi-touch functionality while adding relatively little circuitry that is specific to the multi-touch functionality. Thus, by sharing circuitry for the display and the multi-touch functionalities, embodiments of the invention can be implemented at a lower cost than the alternative of superimposing additional multi-touch related layers onto an existing display panel. Furthermore, since the display and multi-touch functionality can be implemented on the same circuit, they can be synchronized so that noise resulting from the display functionality does not detrimentally affect the multi-touch functionality and vice versa. Link: U.S. Patent 8040326

This patent was originally filed on 2007-06-13 which gives it a processing time of 1588 days, compared to an average processing time of 1638 in the field. Apple Inc. has 15027 total patents. The first named inventor is Steven Hotelling of Los Gatos, CA. The assistant examiner was Matthew Yeung.
