Nintendo Switch Parental Controls Password Input Patent

Nintendo Co., Ltd. have applied for a new “Information Processing” patent in Japan. The patent aims to solve the problem where inputting a password, for example to temporarily disable Nintendo Switch Parental Controls settings (which is used by Nintendo as an example, although the images used show Wii), can be easily identified by the child. The patent also aims to reduce erroneous input. Images used in the application added below (large post). Thanks to J-PlatPat.
