Title:
OPERATION INPUT DEVICE
Document Type and Number:
Japanese Patent JP2009181423
Kind Code:
A
Abstract:

To provide an operation input device preventing an input error and enabling more precise input.

An operation input section 15 includes: a palm rest 21 and a hand detection sensor 23 on the top surface of a case 19; and for example, an analog resistive film touch panel 17 on the forward top surface of the case 19. The palm rest 21, on which a palm is placed when operating the touch panel 17, is a plane slightly inclined forward to a horizontal position. In particular, the touch panel 17 is inclined downward to the surface of the palm rest 21. In other words, the inclination angle of the touch panel 17 is set so that fingertips (in detail, the cushion of the fingertips) naturally touch the surface (panel face) of the touch panel 17, when placing a palm on the palm rest 21.
