Abstract

See full text

Users may view web pages, play games, send emails, take photos, and perform other tasks using mobile devices. Unfortunately, the limited screen size and resolution of mobile devices may restrict users from adequately viewing virtual objects, such as maps, images, email, user interfaces, etc. Accordingly, one or more systems and/or techniques for displaying portions of virtual objects on a mobile device are disclosed herein. A mobile device may be configured with one or more sensors (e.g., a digital camera, an accelerometer, or a magnetometer) configured to detect motion of the mobile device (e.g., a pan, tilt, or forward/backward motion). A portion of a virtual object may be determined based upon the detected motion and displayed on the mobile device. For example, a view of a top portion of an email may be displayed on a cell phone based upon the user panning the cell phone in an upward direction.
