New "Tilt-to-Scroll" Patent Makes Your Phone's Screen Easier to See While Tilting and Panning

Smart Scroll for Mobile Devices

INNOVENTIONS awarded fifth US patent for its RotoView(TM) "smart scroll" technology

HOUSTON, May 25, 2016 -- INNOVENTIONS, Inc. has been awarded US Patent 9,348,435 for its RotoView "tilt-to-scroll" technology for mobile phone displays. The new patent, "Motion-Based View Scrolling System with Proportional and Dynamic Modes," describes a mode for proportional scrolling that allows precise scrolling within a predefined tilt rotation range.

"Our latest patent improves RotoView technology, using the new proportional scrolling mode together with the dynamic scrolling mode where tilt changes control the panning speed," said Dr. David Y. Feinstein, president and CTO of INNOVENTIONS. "This makes the screen much easier to see by eliminating the need to tilt the phone at an uncomfortable sharp angle."

"We have been actively developing RotoView and adding to our patent portfolio for over 15 years," added Feinstein. "It demonstrates our company's ongoing commitment to tilt-to-scroll technology."

RotoView is the original tilt-to-scroll technology for mobile displays found in smartphones and tablets. The first RotoView patent family has been cited as prior art in more than 380 US patents. RotoView apps, including RotoView Photo Viewer (Android, iOS) and RotoView PDF Reader (Android), use the technology disclosed in the new patent to efficiently scroll or pan large images and documents.

INNOVENTIONS' RotoView technology portfolio now includes five US patents, one European patent, and extensive API software for Android and iOS developers. INNOVENTIONS is seeking strategic partnerships with major companies to expedite development and deployment of the technology.

RotoView can be easily implemented in mobile devices that utilize the existing gyroscope and accelerometer sensors. It offers an improved user experience by allowing scrolling with one hand, as well as achieving fast scrolling of highly magnified screens. While RotoView can replace touch screen in some applications, it is designed to be well integrated with the touch screen navigation, as demonstrated in the RotoView apps.
