RotoView® Smart Scroll Intellectual Property

The original tilt to scroll technology for mobile devices

INNOVENTIONS pioneered tilt-to-scroll for hand held devices since it was first invented more than sixteen years ago by Dr. David Y. Feinstein, the company President and CTO. We have been refining and promoting the RotoView technology for many years, long before the invention of the iPhone or the Wii game controller.

The RotoView IP provides the basic patent portfolio for tilt-to-scroll display navigation. As of August 2016, the RotoView original patents (US6,466,198 and US6,933,923) have been cited as prior art in 412 separate US patents. The RotoView IP also covers the use of orientation sensors to control the background view navigation in gaming and in wearable virtual reality (VR) devices.

The US6,466,198, US6,933,923 and EP1,290,672 cover many of the basic ideas of smartphone tilt-to-scroll, including simultaneous tilt scrolling in both the horizontal and vertical directions, the Dynamic Scroll mode, the dynamic changing of scrolling speed, scrolling that changes the screen view position only when the tilt is changing (e.g. 360° viewers), combined view magnification and tilt scrolling, various movement gestures to activate and terminate tilt scrolling, and much more. Tilt control activation by tapping sound detection as disclosed by these patents provides an intuitive solution for Smart Watch tilt control.

The US8,675,019 and 9,424,810 patents cover our unique RotoView Scroll Controller technology that guides and controls the RotoView scrolling. These patents also have wide general applications for HUD color selections and functionality, as well as movable HUD graphical controllers.

The US9,181,760 and US9,348,435 patents cover various aspects of Proportional Scroll mode, automatic selection of Dynamic Scroll mode or Proportional Scroll mode as well as the tilt baseline updates required when scrolling reaches the boundaries of the contents view.

"Here's a technology that could put a new spin on moving and shaking... Don't be surprised if you see people waving their PDAs around."
PC Magazine, September 2003

"If sliding our fingers up and down our phones feels like an intuitive scrolling motion today, simply tilting our screens may be the obvious choice of tomorrow when it comes to moving text around a screen. Thanks to a new patent awarded to Houston-based Innoventions Inc., reading an article may soon be as easy as changing your viewing angle."
