I Wonder if you actually need to implement a visual triangle or if a 
triangular touch area would work just as well?

And I wonder how tighly the patent is written around the concept of a 
triangle.. Perhaps shave off a tiny prtion of the tip of the triangle 
and you have a parallelogram... hmm just a tiny portion.. say a two 
pixel wide section
