Abstract

The problem with push buttons or a rocker button for multi-directional controlling is that they either take up a larger amount of area, or for a given limited area that the buttons would have to be made smaller and thus cause ergonomic problems such as inadvertent actu- ation of the wrong button or diiculty in operating the button.
