This Technology Makes Tilt Scrolling Easier on Your Phone and Smartwatch

Smart Scroll for Mobile Devices

INNOVENTIONS awarded seventh US patent for its RotoView(TM) tilt scroll for mobile devices

HOUSTON, July 31, 2018 /PRNewswire/ -- INNOVENTIONS, Inc. has been awarded a seventh US Patent (US10,031,657) for its RotoView "tilt-to-scroll" technology for mobile displays. The new patent, "Tilt-Based View Scrolling with Baseline Update for Proportional and Dynamic Modes," details how RotoView automatically selects the best scrolling mode based on the screen magnification ratio, as well as other parameters. This provides the user an improved experience by allowing fast and precise scrolling of smartphone and smartwatch displays with one hand.

"Developers are adding tilt-based scrolling to mobile devices and apps, enhancing the user experience by sharing immersive views of the world around us," said Dr. David Y. Feinstein, president and CTO of INNOVENTIONS. "This makes RotoView technology perfect for tilt-based virtual reality navigation, or scrolling 360-degree panoramic photos and videos, and any other application where the user navigates highly magnified scenery in all directions. We have also adapted the technology to improve smartwatch user interfaces, where the small screen sizes pose interface challenges."

RotoView is the original tilt-to-scroll technology for mobile displays, with the first RotoView patent family cited as prior art in over 500 US patents. RotoView apps, including RotoView Photo Viewer and RotoView PDF Reader, implement the technology disclosed in the new patent to efficiently scroll or pan large images and documents. It is easy to implement in mobile devices that use gyroscope and accelerometer sensors.

INNOVENTIONS' RotoView technology portfolio now includes seven US patents, one European patent, and extensive API software for Android and iOS developers. Our ongoing patent applications cover additional technologies for smartwatch user interfaces. INNOVENTIONS is seeking strategic partnerships with major companies to expedite development and deployment of the technology.
