  • Integrated cordless mouse and laser pointer

    • United States Patent 6,417,840
    • Issued May 25, 1999
    Inventors: Ted Daniels

    A communication device capable of selectively communicating control signals to a computer and transmitting a narrow beam of light. A cordless communication device is provided having operational buttons and a port. The communication device may function as a computer mouse, a trackball apparatus, or a touch pad apparatus. Operational signals are generated by a signal generator in response to activation of the operational buttons or movement of a mouse ball. The communication device further includes a light generating apparatus in communication with the port which generates the narrow beam of light. A selectively operable switch is provided for selectively transmitting the operational signals or the beam of light. The communication device includes an independent power supply as well as a power level monitor and switching apparatus. Preferably, the beam of light is a laser beam or other focused beam of light.

  • Method for implementing picture-in-picture function for multiple computers

    • United States Patent 6,373,500
    • Issued August 19, 1999
    Inventors: Ted Daniels

    An apparatus simultaneously displays the output of two or more computers on a single monitor in a manner similar to the manner in which television sets provide picture-in-picture (PIP) viewing. In one embodiment, computer video is converted to a format such as NTSC so that existing television set PIP circuits may be employed with little or no modification. In another embodiment, the PIP circuit accepts computer video inputs. In yet another embodiment, the apparatus utilizes a processor to control the content of the main display area and PIP window using cursor position. The apparatus also supplies input device signals, such as mouse and keyboard signals, to the computer corresponding to the main screen area and transmits dummy keyboard and mouse signals to other computers attached to the system.
