This class provides for data processing means or steps wherein a) human perceptible elements of electronic information (i.e., text or graphics) are gathered, associated, created, formatted, edited, prepared, or otherwise processed in forming a unified collection of such information storable as a distinct entity, b) a users interaction with a computer system is used to control the presentation of display data; such interaction is interpreted and used by a data processor or computer architecture wherein system level elements of computation or data processing techniques are used prior to use with or in a specific display system, or c) a small program takes over a display screen if there are no keystrokes or mouse movements for a specified duration.

Subclass 706: Virtual character or avatar (e.g., animated person)
Subclass 718: Mode switching interface (e.g., switching between TV and computer)
Subclass 757: Virtual 3D environment

Class 463: Amusement Devices: Games

Subject matter, relating to the type of amusement, recreation, or play activity commonly known as: (1) A game, wherein one or more players or participants engage in a competition or contest involving skill, ability, strategy, or chance--against either another player or players or against a device which is intended to function as a competitive player or players; the exception being that a game which includes or utilizes a tangible projectile--other than a propelled racing game or a chance device, classified herein--is classified elsewhere. (2) A chance device. (3) A puzzle, wherein a participant"s mind is tested or otherwise challenged in an exercise of cleverness, ingenuity. (4) a fortune telling, wherein an attempt is made to predict the future. (5) device used by a person (often involved in law enforcement) to electrically shock or strike a human being so as to control said being, (e.g., a police club, night stick, black jack, brass knuckles, martial-art-type striking device, electric prod, etc.).
