Apple working on motion compensation

One of Apple’s newer patent applications point towards the development of motion compensation features on devices such as the iPhone. This application describes different ways to turn handling of a touchscreen device or viewing a mobile screen easier whenever said device is moving about, be it when traveling on a bumpy road in a car or plain walking around. Some of the solutions include display adjustment using motion data and screen properties, scaling selectable images, varying the input region on a touchscreen device or even including pressure values and location values. I suppose not having incorporate such technology is a good thing if you want to prevent pedestrians from being too engrossed in the current movie they’re watching and step out in front of a fast-moving truck, realizing their error too late.
