DETAILED DESCRIPTION OF THE INVENTION

[0001]

The present invention relates to a computer pointing device. More specifically, the present invention relates to a stylus for inputting to a touch screen.

[0002]

2. Description of the Related Art PDA (Personal Digital Assistant)
s) and small computers called lightweight palmtop computers use touch screens as input devices. The touch screen is provided with a sensor of a pressure-sensitive type or the like so that a two-dimensional position indicated by a stylus on the touch screen can be read and a character drawn by the stylus on the touch screen can be recognized. The stylus can be replaced with, for example, the tip of a pencil, but usually, a dedicated pen stylus is attached to the small computer so as not to damage the touch screen.

On the other hand, Japanese Patent Application Laid-Open No. H11-134103 discloses a ring 102 worn on a finger (FIG. 7) in order to eliminate the inconvenience of switching the stylus each time to indicate a point on a touch screen during keyboard input. ), A sack 103 (FIG. 8) and a pinch 104 (FIG. 9) with a stylus 105 on a touch screen are proposed.

[0004]

However, in the finger stylus 101 for a touch screen disclosed in Japanese Patent Application Laid-Open No. H11-134103, the stylus 105 fluctuates during use, making it difficult to perform stable input, and handwriting input is performed on a small touch screen. In addition, an input error is likely to occur at the time of detailed work, such as when a desired menu is selected from many menus displayed on the touch screen. On the other hand, stylus 1
05, ring 102, sack 103, pinch 10
If 4 is strongly tightened on the finger, the finger will be pressed and the blood flow will be stagnant,
Can not stand very long use.

[0005] On the other hand, a pen-type stylus is suitable for performing fine and accurate work, but has a problem in that it is cumbersome when used as described above. Also, for example, a person with a handicap may find it difficult to use a pen-type stylus. In the case of a pen-type stylus that is separate from a small computer, it may be lost.

Accordingly, an object of the present invention is to provide a stylus for a touch screen which is easy to use and excellent in operability.

[0007]

In order to achieve the above object, a false nail stylus according to the first aspect of the present invention has a false nail provided with a stylus for inputting data to a touch screen of a computer. Therefore, the artificial nail provided with the stylus can be strongly fixed to the nail of the computer user by the adhesive glue for the artificial nail, so that the stylus does not fluctuate at the time of input to the touch screen. In addition, since the false nail is attached to the insensitive nail, it can be strongly fixed and operated as a part of the nail of the user. Therefore, the user does not feel uncomfortable and does not feel pressure.

According to a second aspect of the present invention, in the false nail stylus of the first aspect, the stylus is provided at a tip of the false nail. Therefore, since the movement of the user's finger is directly input to the touch screen, very high operability is obtained.

According to a third aspect of the present invention, in the false nail stylus of the first or second aspect, the stylus is inclined with respect to the false nail. Therefore, the degree of raising the angle of the nail or finger when operating the touch screen is reduced, and the operation can be performed with a reasonable inclination,
Not tired. In addition, the stylus is prevented from being caught in daily life, and safety can be improved.

According to a fourth aspect of the present invention, there is provided an artificial nail type stylus according to any one of the first to third aspects.
The stylus and the artificial nail are formed integrally. Therefore, it is possible to facilitate the manufacture of the artificial nail having the stylus, and to increase the strength of the attachment portion of the stylus as compared with a case where the stylus is separately attached later.

[0011]

DETAILED DESCRIPTION OF THE PREFERRED EMBODIMENTS The configuration of the present invention will be described below in detail based on an embodiment shown in the drawings.

1 to 3 show an embodiment of an artificial nail type stylus of the present invention. This false nail stylus 7
The stylus 2 for inputting to the touch screen 4 of the computer 3 is provided on the artificial nail 1.

Here, the computer 3 is, for example, a small computer called a PDA or a lightweight palmtop computer, and has a pressure-sensitive touch screen 4 as an input device. The computer 3 senses a pressure change on the touch screen 4 due to the contact of the stylus 2, reads a two-dimensional position instructed on the touch screen 4, and recognizes a character drawn on the touch screen 4. . However, the configuration of the touch screen 4 is not limited to a pressure-sensitive type. For example, other configurations conventionally used for the touch screen 4, for example,
An electromagnetic induction system, an infrared system, a magnetostrictive system, or the like may be used.

The form of the computer 3 is not particularly limited as long as it has the touch screen 4.
For example, it may be a notebook personal computer or a portable information terminal such as a mobile phone.

The size and shape of the artificial nail 1 are not particularly limited, and can be formed in an appropriate shape according to the shape of the nail of the computer user, the manner of use of the computer 3 and the custom of living. Generally, if several sizes, preferably 5 to 10 sizes, are prepared, they will fit most users' nails.

The size and shape of the stylus 2 are as follows:
Although not particularly limited, it is preferable that the tip is small or thin so that a fine input to the touch screen 4 is possible, while the surface of the touch screen 4 is not damaged. Those having a moderately curved surface at the tip are preferred.

FIGS. 2 and 3 show a preferred example of the shapes of the artificial nail 1 and the stylus 2. FIG. False nail 1 of the present embodiment
Is formed in the same shape as the index finger nail and slightly larger than the index finger nail, for example, so as to be worn over the index finger nail. Further, the stylus 2 of the present embodiment includes:
It has the same thickness as the false nail 1 and has a triangular shape tapered toward the tip. Also, the tip of the stylus 2
The surface of the touch screen 4 is prevented from being damaged by finishing the surface of the touch screen 4 smoothly.

In this embodiment, for example, the stylus 2 is provided at the tip of the false nail 1. Thus, the movement of the user's finger is directly input to the touch screen 4 by the stylus 2, so that high operability is obtained.

In this embodiment, the stylus 2 and the artificial nail 1 are integrally formed. Thereby, the manufacture of the artificial nail 1 having the stylus 2 is facilitated,
Further, the strength of the attachment portion of the stylus 2 can be increased as compared with the case where the stylus 2 is separately attached later.

As the material of the artificial nail 1 and the stylus 2, it is preferable to use, for example, plastic (synthetic resin) which is easy to process and has appropriate hardness. In this case, for example, each user may use a nail clipper or a nail file so that the artificial nail 1 can be further fitted to the user's nail or more easily used.
Or the stylus 2 can be processed.
However, the material is not limited to plastic, and for example, other materials such as wood, natural resin, and hard rubber may be used in some cases. When the touch screen 4 has a configuration other than a pressure-sensitive type such as an electromagnetic induction type, an infrared type, and a magnetostrictive type, any material can be used as long as various sensors can detect an input of the stylus 2.

The artificial nail 1 is preferably transparent (including colorless transparent, colored transparent, and translucent). Thus, when the artificial nail 1 is mounted, the color of the artificial nail becomes the same as that of the original nail, and there is no unnaturalness in appearance. Furthermore, for example, a woman can use the artificial nail 1 more naturally by applying nail polish of a favorite color, a top coat for polishing, etc. to the artificial nail 1.

The false nail 1 can be attached to the nail of the user with, for example, a commercially available general adhesive for false nails. Thereby, the false nail 1 is strongly fixed to the nail of the user. On the other hand, the artificial nail 1 can be easily peeled off from the nail of the user by using, for example, a commercially available release agent for artificial artificial nails.

According to the artificial nail type stylus 7 configured as described above, the artificial nail 1 having the stylus 2 can be strongly fixed to the nail of the computer user.
The stylus 2 does not fluctuate when inputting to the touch screen 4. Then, since the movement of the user's finger is directly input to the touch screen 4, extremely high operability is obtained. Moreover, since it is not necessary to hold the device like a conventional pen-type stylus, the touch screen 4 can be operated even if there is an obstacle in which a long and narrow stick cannot be held. Therefore, input errors to the touch screen 4 can be significantly reduced.

On the other hand, since the false nail 1 is attached to a nail with no sensation, it is strongly fixed, but the user does not feel uncomfortable and does not feel pressure. Therefore, the computer 3 can be used in a comfortable state. Also, even when the artificial nail 1 is worn other than when the computer 3 is used, it does not hinder daily life. In particular, a transparent false nail 1
Then, when the false nail 1 is worn, the color of the nail becomes the same as the original nail color, and there is no unnatural feeling in appearance, so that there is no trouble in use in a business place, for example. Furthermore, for example, a woman can apply nail polish of a favorite color, a top coat for polishing, etc. to the artificial nail 1, and the artificial nail 1 can be used more naturally. In addition, when it is desired to remove the artificial nail 1, it can be easily removed with a commercially available general artificial nail release agent.

Further, the user can very easily adjust the false nail 1 to the shape of each nail by using a nail clipper or a nail file as appropriate.

Although the above-described embodiment is an example of a preferred embodiment of the present invention, the present invention is not limited thereto, and various modifications can be made without departing from the spirit of the present invention.

For example, the artificial nail 1 is not limited to the one worn on the index finger, but may be worn on any one of the desired nail, thumb, middle finger, ring finger, and little finger according to the custom of life of the user. Is also good. Alternatively, it may be attached to a toenail. Thus, for example, a person who has some other hand trouble can easily use the computer 3.

Further, the stylus 2 and the artificial nail 1 are not limited to being integrally formed, and the stylus 2 may be attached and fixed to the artificial nail 1 later.

For example, the stylus 2 may be configured to be detachable from the false nail 1. For example, as shown in FIG. 6, an artificial nail 1 to which a pedestal 5 having a slit is fixed and a detachable stylus 2 having a base 6 fitted into the slit of the pedestal 5 constitute an artificial nail type stylus 7. Is also good. In this case, if necessary, stylus 2
Can be attached to the false nail 1 or a different type of stylus 2 can be attached as needed. Moreover, the fixation between the stylus 2 and the artificial nail 1 does not affect the user's finger or nail and does not stimulate the sensation. When the stylus 2 is not required, the stylus 2 may be stored in the computer 3, for example.

The shapes of the artificial nail 1 and the stylus 2 are, for example, as shown in FIG.
The stylus 2 may be provided so as to protrude linearly from the tip of the artificial nail, or as shown in FIG. It may be provided to be inclined. By inclining the stylus 2 downward from the tip of the false nail 1, the degree of raising the angle of the nail / finger when operating the touch screen 4 is reduced, the operation can be performed with a reasonable inclination, and fatigue is less likely. Moreover, it is possible to prevent the stylus 2 from being caught in daily life. Thereby, the safety of the artificial nail 1 can be enhanced. In addition,
The angle θ at which the stylus 2 is inclined downward from the tip of the false nail 1 is not limited to a specific angle, and may be, for example,
So that users can choose what is easy to enter on their own,
Several kinds of false nails 1 having different inclination angles θ of the stylus 2 may be prepared.

Further, for example, the artificial nail 1 for a woman may not only be provided with the stylus 2 but also be shaped to have a decorative beauty. For example, the artificial nail 1 may have a shape longer than the length of the nail of the user. Further, the artificial nail 1 is not limited to a transparent one, and may be a colored one or a one with a pattern on the surface.

[0032]

As is apparent from the above description, the artificial nail according to the first aspect of the present invention is provided with a mechanical stylus for inputting data to the touch screen of the computer. It is strongly fixed to the nail by the adhesive glue for false nail. Therefore,
The stylus does not fluctuate during input to the touch screen, and input errors to the touch screen can be significantly reduced. In addition, by mounting on a nail that is easy to use according to the custom of life of the user, even a person with any handicap can easily use the computer. In addition, because false nails are attached to insensitive nails,
Although strongly fixed, the user does not feel uncomfortable and does not feel oppressed. Therefore, the computer can be used in a comfortable state. Further, the user can very easily adjust the false nail to the shape of each nail by using a nail clipper or a nail file as appropriate.

Further, in the false nail type stylus according to the second aspect, the stylus is provided at the tip of the false nail, so that the movement of the user's finger is directly input to the touch screen, so that it is extremely high. Operability is obtained. As a result, accurate input can be performed on the touch screen, and input errors can be significantly reduced.

In the false nail stylus according to the third aspect, since the stylus is inclined with respect to the false nail, the degree of raising the angle of the nail and finger when operating the touch screen is reduced, and it is reasonable. It can be operated with a tilt, making it less tiring. In addition, the stylus is prevented from being caught in daily life, and safety can be improved.

In the false nail stylus according to the fourth aspect, since the stylus and the false nail are integrally formed, the manufacture of the false nail having the stylus is facilitated, and a separate stylus is separately provided later. The strength of the attachment portion of the stylus can be increased as compared with the case where the stylus is attached.
