Abstract

Disclosed is a device for sharing screen by rotating displayed object, which provides better visibility for the people watching a screen from multiple direction. The displayed object-controlling parameters and switching triggers are designed. Fig.1 and Fig.2 show the conventional screen sharing method. Multiple people watching a screen from the same direction, but watching a screen obliquely is hard to see and makes people tired. Fig.3 shows a way to show the screen by turning the unit itself, but one person will have difficulty to watch the screen and moving the unit itself frequently will be prohibited to repeat. Fig.4-(1) shows a way sharing a screen by placing it horizontally between confronting people. But the other people will see the screen upside-down (see Fig.4-(2)). Assuming the person in the right side is a presenter showing the screen and the person in the left side is a listener to be shown the screen, the screen displayed object shall be rotated by 180 degree to show the right setting screen to a customer (see Fig.4-(3)).
