Newton John: Touch screen system with hover and click input methods. Next Holdings, Newton John, PRATT John S, October 23, 2008: WO/2008/128096 (25 worldwide citation)

A touch screen system that can approximate tracking and dragging states regardless of the user's orientation and without reliance on direct sensing of touch pressure or area. A first detector generates a signal representing a first image of an object interacting with the touch screen. A second detec ...

Newton John David: Systems and methods for resolving multitouch scenarios for optical touchscreens. Next Holdings, Newton John David, PRATT John Set al, August 20, 2009: WO/2009/102681 (23 worldwide citation)

An optical touch detection system may rely on triangulating points in a touch area based on the direction of shadows cast by an object interrupting light in the touch area. When two interruptions occur simultaneously, ghost points and true touch points triangulated from the shadows can be distinguis ...

A low profile touch display can be provided, namely one including an optical detection system with the bulk of the electronics and optics positioned partially or completely below the detecting plane surface. The light source and optical detection system components can be configured so that the exit ...

Newton John: Optical touchscreen with improved illumination. Next Holdings, Newton John, PRATT John S, March 5, 2009: WO/2009/029767 (16 worldwide citation)

In an optical touch display system, light from a primary source can be retroreflected to a detector in the absence of an object in the detection area. When an object is present, its position can be triangulated based on the direction of its shadows at the detectors. Accuracy can be improved with a s ...
