This Technology Makes Tilt Scrolling Easier on Your Phone and Smartwatch

Smart Scroll for Mobile Devices

INNOVENTIONS awarded 11th US patent for its RotoView(TM) tilt-based scrolling for mobile devices

HOUSTON, March 9, 2020 -- INNOVENTIONS, Inc. has been awarded its 11th US Patent (US10,579,247) for its RotoView "tilt-to-scroll" technology for mobile displays. The new patent, "Motion-Based View Scrolling With Augmented Tilt Control," is a continuation of the company's US10,126,839 patent. It allows unidirectional tilt-based scrolling, where the tilt changes in the direction of scrolling control the scrolling motion, while the tilt changes in the other direction modifies scrolling speed, scrolling rotation range or other scrolling parameter. This invention gives the user an improved experience by allowing precise and fast scrolling of smartphone and smartwatch displays while using one hand.

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. The technology has also been adapted to improve smartwatch user interfaces, where the small screen sizes pose interface challenges.

INNOVENTIONS' RotoView technology portfolio now includes 11 US patents, 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.
