Magic Mouse patents appear in Europe

J with the staff of Patently Apple digging up Ma's intellectual property documents in the United States, but in the case of the Magic Mouse, for some reason, two of these documents appeared quite far from Cupertino (California).

The documents are strictly technical, covering algorithms and methods for detecting unwanted events when handling a multi-touch mouse, whether they are a gesture while the user moves the cursor, or a movement of the cursor while making a complex gesture.

The patents are number 20100117962 and 20100117963, respectively, entitled “Suppressing Errant Motion Using Integrated Mouse and Touch Information” and “Generating Gestures Tailored to a Hand Resting on a Surface”.
