ALEXANDRIA, Va., Sept. 5 -- Apple, Cupertino, Calif., has been assigned a patent (8,527,908) developed by Aleksandar Pance, Saratoga, Calif., David Robbins Falkenburg, San Jose, Calif., and Jason Medeiros, Mississauga, Canada, for a "computer user interface system and methods."
The abstract of the patent published by the U.S. Patent and Trademark Office states: "Systems and methods may provide user control of a computer system via one or more sensors. Also, systems and methods may provide automated response of a computer system to information acquired via one or more sensors. The sensor(s) may be configured to measure distance, depth proximity and/or presence. In particular, the sensor(s) may be configured to measure a relative location, distance, presence, movements and/or gestures of one or more users of the computer system. Thus, the systems and methods may provide a computer user interface based on measurements of distance, depth, proximity, presence and/or movements by one or more sensors. For example, various contexts and/or operations of the computer system, at the operating system level and/or the application level, may be controlled, automatically and/or at a user's direction, based on information acquired by the sensor(s)."
The patent application was filed on Sept. 26, 2008 (12/238,601). The full-text of the patent can be found at http://patft.uspto.gov/netacgi/nph-Parser?Sect1=PTO1&Sect2=HITOFF&d=PALL&p=1&u=%2Fnetahtml%2FPTO%2Fsrchnum.htm&r=1&f=G&l=50&s1=8,527,908.PN.&OS=PN/8,527,908&RS=PN/8,527,908
