And, rotating the user and the fingers or the wrist or the arm relative to the left motion vector in the forward direction (roll) (ⓑ) for when generating a control signal to increase the volume in response to the rotation number or the rotational speed, and the mobile user is left vector and when the rotation (roll) (ⓒ) a finger or the wrist or arm by a rear direction generates a control signal to lower the volume corresponding to the rotation number or the rotational speed, and to be delivered to the user terminal.

On the other hand, it is possible when a user moves a finger or wrist or arm to the right was the source rotates a finger or the wrist or the arm in the axial motion vector from one state to the return position in response to the channel of the user terminal or lower.

That is, when the user returns to the home position and moved the fingers or wrist or arm to the right (ⓓ), control unit 240 determines that a control operation of a Volume. Then, the user and when the rotation (roll) (ⓔ) a finger or the wrist or the arm relative to the right of the motion vector in the forward direction corresponding to the rotation number or the rotational speed and to generate a control signal that changes from the current channel to a higher channel, the user and the fingers or the wrist or the arm relative to the right of the motion vector when the rotation (roll) (ⓕ) in the backward direction corresponding to the rotation number or the rotational speed to generate a control signal for changing to a lower channel in the current channel, the user terminal It shall be forwarded to.

And as shown in Figure 9d, the user and the finger or the wrist or arm and moved toward the image side is when source rotates the fingers or wrist or the arm in the axial motion vectors in a returning state to the position to increase or decrease the volume of a user terminal is.

That is, when the user returns to the home position and moved the fingers or wrist or upper arm (ⓖ), control unit 240 determines that a control operation of a Volume. Then, the user rotates a finger or the wrist or the arm relative to the upper moving vector in the clockwise direction (roll) (ⓗ) for when generating a control signal to increase the volume in response to the rotation number or the rotational speed, and the user moves the upper vector and when the rotation (roll) (ⓘ) a finger or the wrist or the arm in the counterclockwise direction based on the generated control signal to lower the volume corresponding to the rotation number or the rotational speed, and to be delivered to the user terminal.

Similarly, if a user can rotate the finger or palm or fingers or wrist or arm of the vector in a state of returning the arm to the home position and moved to the lower side in the axial channel in response to the user's terminal or lower.

That is, when the user returns to the home position and moved the fingers or wrist or arm to the lower side (ⓙ), control unit 240 determines that a control operation of a Volume. Then, the user and when the rotation (roll) (ⓚ) a finger or the wrist or the arm relative to the lower motion vector in the clockwise direction corresponding to the rotation number or the rotational speed and to generate a control signal that changes from the current channel to a higher channel, the user and when the rotation (roll) (ⓛ) a finger or the wrist or the arm relative to the lower motion vector in the counterclockwise direction corresponding to the rotation number or the rotational speed generates a control signal for changing to a lower channel in the current channel, the user It should be delivered to the device.

On the other hand, also according to the 9a through 9d, but the user is described, for example, by moving the finger or wrist or arm to the left side or the image side, and to adjust the volume, change the channel when moved to the right or the lower side, a finger or wrist, or it is possible to change the control signal for the volume or channel design in accordance with the direction of movement of the arm.

Also, as in Figure 9a through 9d, and the user has to move the finger or wrist or the arm in the forward direction, or when the rotation, while it is then transferred to the front back to the original position to change the volume or channel, on the contrary, the user It is to move the fingers or the wrist or the arm in the rear, or when a rotation in a state in which return to a home position and moved rearward can change channels or volume.

Similarly, also the direction of rotation of the finger or wrist or arm to control the increase and decrease of volume or channel can be designed to change according to user's convenience.

Meanwhile, Figure 9a through 9d has been described to regulate a channel or volume according to the user's movement, in response to the user's motion in addition to the channel or the volume control, scroll, zoom-in / zoom-out, page turning, the active program conversion, the music file execution at least one can be better controlled during.

Therefore, control unit 240, a user to rotate around a direction vector corresponding to the direction after a predetermined move in the direction predetermined by a finger or the wrist or the arm, or moving in the direction the user is a predetermined finger or wrist or arm when was the source rotates relative to the machine direction of vector corresponding to a predetermined direction in a return condition to the position according to the direction of rotation, move the scroll to the upper side or lower side, or to zoom in or out, or to the previous page or next page, move, or to activate the previously active program or the next program or activity it can be controlled so as to execute the next or previous music file music file.

Described control unit 240 is a duplicate process of generating the various control signals are the same as those of the Figure 9a through 9d is omitted.

Fig. 9e and 9f is for explaining a process of a user changes, or select a channel through the ring-type radio controller apparatus 200.

Fig 9e depicts the status channel list on the screen of the user terminal 300 is displayed in the vertical direction, Fig. 9f illustrates the status channel list on the screen of the user terminal 300 is displayed in the horizontal direction.
