Method and System for Device Tilting Based Preview of Multiple Pages
To navigate to new web pages or turn the pages of an electronic book on a computer or handheld device, users often use a finger gesture. Another method of reaching a new page is to select a page number from the bottom of the screen to jump to that page. These methods do not enable a user to preview the content of another page without turning to it.
A method and system are needed to allow a user to view the content of other pages without turning the current page.
The novel contribution is a method and system that incorporate a tilt sensor in an electronic device as a mechanism to allow a user to preview pages without directly navigating and opening the pages.
A tilt sensor installed in the device tracks the user's tilt action on the device. A camera installed in the device tracks user's focus on the tilted side, and accordingly the system shows subsequent pages to the user. Based on the preview of the subsequent pages, the user can understand the content and then can select the desired page for viewing. Users can un-tilt the device to view the selected page. The user can hold any page with a finger and bring the content to the front for viewing. The viewing coverage of the content in subsequent pages is based on the tilt angle. The software also tracks a user's focus on the appropriate page section during the tilt condition, and accordingly increases the viewing coverage of the focus areas.
