Apple patenta un guante para interactuar con las pantallas táctiles

Las pantallas multitáctiles con interacción humana que reaccionan ante los movimientos y gestos se introducirán masivamente este año en el mercado y Apple viene trabajando en ello según se dio a conocer en la patente “High tactility glove system”.

Se trata de unos guantes con 3 puntos de interacción en la superficie de los dedos pulgar, índice y anular.

Para mayor referencia ver la siguiente escena de la película “minority report” donde Tom Cruise se la pasa jugando con una pantalla multitáctiles del sistema policial precrimen.

This invention is directed to a glove system for operating an electronic device. The glove system may include an inner liner and an outer shell. The liner may be formed from any suitable material, including a material that is thin, electrically conductive, has low thermal conductivity, and/or has an “anti-sticky” finish. The outer shell may include at least one aperture through which the inner liner may extend to operate the input mechanism of an electronic device (e.g., on at least one finger tip). In some embodiments, the aperture may be at a finger tip of the outer shell. In some embodiments, a closing mechanism may be used to maintain the aperture closed when the user is not operating the electronic device. For example, an elastic ring may surround the aperture such that, in its non-deformed state, the aperture is substantially closed. The user may elastically deform the ring to allow the liner to pass through the outer shell.
