Delaware Patent of the Month – January 2021

Touch-screen systems are common features in devices. They are a common feature in most new smart phones, laptops and tablets. Touching a screen and telling it exactly what to do with your own hands is much more satisfying than clicking it with a mouse. What’s made these devices even better and more functional are styluses and e-pens, like Sigmasense, LLC’s frequency diverse e-pen. 

Styluses are useful tools – allowing us to be more precise and use our touch screen when we’re wearing gloves; but Sigmasense’s e-pen is another thing altogether. It has its own sensors that link to the sensors on a touch device, meaning it doesn’t just mimic your finger, like a stylus, but acts as a true electronic pen. The e-pen has more than just one sensor, in fact it has multiple sensors, so you’ll experience better pressure sensing from your touch devices, improved pen tracking, and overall a smoother writing experience. Unlike other e-pens, this one also has a memory storage where it stores operational instructions, so it knows the difference between a screen scroll, a swipe, zoom functions, etc. and communicates this to the touch device.
