SUBSTANCE: two signals are transmitted to an image blurring device of a digital device with a display. A first signal is transmitted from a sensor for detecting stress in eye muscles which control accommodation of the eyes of the user, located near the eyes of the user in form of glasses or a headset. A second signal is generated by a program of the digital device with a display. The image blurring device generates an output signal which controls the degree of image blurriness on the display, which is proportional to the difference between two input signals. The greater the difference between the magnitude of input signals, the greater the image blurriness on the display, and the lesser the difference, the lesser the image blurriness on the display.

EFFECT: stimulating eye muscles to perform more eye accommodation work.

SUBSTANCE: client-side signalling mechanism that allows a client to control how a telephone call is handled on a call server is disclosed. The client user can create call routing rules on the client device using a client control component that manages session protocol messages. Once created, the call routing rule(s) created on the client are transmitted to the call server where a call routing component of the call server processes the rule(s) for a call related to the client. When the server receives the rule(s) and determines that the rule(s) are related to an existing call (incoming or currently in process), the server halts current normal server rules processing for that call and executes the client-created rule(s). SIP session messages are employed for client control of server-side call forwarding.

EFFECT: enabling creation of call routing rules on a client based on use session protocol messages via an existing session protocol.
