Description

Multifunctional touchpad remote controller and its control method

The present invention relates to a remote controller, and more particularly to a multi-function trackpad remote controller.

Remote controls have long been used in a variety of home appliances, such as televisions, air conditioners, audio equipment, and electric fans. They are also used in electronically controlled devices such as toys and electric doors. Nowadays, the concept and products of multimedia computers used in home theaters are becoming more and more mature. They integrate multimedia into personal computers and output them to large displays such as TVs, projectors, etc., or add powerful multimedia functions to large displays. The computational unit or integrated circuit is already a viable fact. Microsoft has developed a Media Center Edition (MCE) that provides multimedia playback and a user-friendly interface that allows users to access photos such as photos, music, TV, movies, home videos, and broadcasts via remote controls. A variety of digital entertainment such as global programs and services. This integration trend has increased the role of the remote control. However, the current technological development only focuses on the improvement on the host side, ignoring the inconvenience caused by the remote control.

A typical traditional remote control has the advantages of intuitive operation and convenience; the remote control provides about 20 buttons, which occupy most of the remote control. If the size of the remote controller is to be reduced, the button will be too small and too tight to operate; conversely, if a larger and looser button is provided, the remote controller will be bulky. On integrated systems, the remote control requires more buttons to control a wider variety of media devices, including, for example, power switches, volume adjustments, channel selection, numeric keys, jump buttons, selection buttons for various media functions, and single The operation of the media uses buttons, up and down, left and right, play, reverse, fast forward, stop, record, and so on. To find the button you want to use from such a large number of buttons, and to avoid accidentally pressing other buttons during operation, it is quite unfriendly to the user.

One way to reduce the number of buttons is to integrate many different functions onto many common buttons. For example, function keys and arrow keys provide media or function items to be selected on the screen, and a project menu can be selected to complete a project selection. In particular, the functions of systems or media are gradually diversified and complicated, and the operation of layer menus becomes less friendly. For the sole purpose of a control, the user may need a dexterous hand and several actions to complete. Even with this type of integration, the number of buttons is still as high as 25 to 30, and the operation becomes very complicated and more likely to cause misoperation. Complex operations often hinder users who are not good at operating the remote control, such as the elderly, children, people with poor eyesight, those with hand problems, and those who are not used to operating the computer.

Using keystrokes also imposes limitations on certain control functions. For example, when using the remote control to adjust the volume, the first time the volume is increased or decreased, the volume bar appears. Then, each time the button is pressed, the volume is increased or decreased by one unit. If the button is pressed continuously, the rate is fixed. Increase or decrease the volume. The same is true for adjusting channels. When using the remote control to adjust the brightness, contrast or color of the screen, the user must first operate the corresponding button to enter a specific function called the adjustment bar, and then press the button that increases or decreases, also increases or decreases by one unit each time the button is pressed. If the button is pressed continuously, the parameter value is increased or decreased at a fixed rate of change. This mode of operation does not quickly reach the desired setpoint. Another way to adjust is to first operate the corresponding button to enter a specific function, then press the number keys to enter the number, and wait for a period of time after the input takes effect. This mode of operation is mostly used when selecting a channel, but still requires the user to look at the remote control for a button.

Nowadays, many electronic products have integrated various multimedia devices. Traditional remote controllers are used in applications on multi-function systems, and their functions are obviously insufficient, such as control/scrolling; zoom in and zoom out. Functions such as (zoom out), drag and rotate, and handwriting input are not operational.
