Here, Radio-Frequency Identification (RFID) tags where wiring is not necessary are arranged between frets for each of the first to sixth strings, whereby its neck strength is maintained. When a string comes close to an RFID tag in response to a string-pressing operation, the RFID tag wirelessly transmits first identification information including at least its own “fret number (string-pressed point)” using electrical power acquired by receiving a radio wave transmitted from the string that functions as an antenna. Then, this information is received and demodulated via the string that functions as an antenna. That is, the string-pressed point is detected by non-contact detection, so that string-pressing detection can be performed without lowering reliability.

The image capture units capture images in different directions. The output unit can be recognized visually by a person wearing the display control apparatus. The behavior detection unit or the situation detection unit detects behavior of the person or a moving situation of an image of a subject in a plurality of captured images captured by the image capture units. The display image generation unit and the display control unit execute control to produce an output so as to make a switch to any of the captured images captured by the image capture units, and display the switched captured image on the output unit in response to the behavior of the person or the moving situation of the image of the subject detected by the behavior detection unit or the situation detection unit.

  • Publication number: 20170060098
    Abstract: An electronic timepiece includes indicators, an operation receiving unit, a timing unit and a processor. The operation receiving unit receives an operation performed by a user. The timing unit counts a date and time at present. The processor carries out operation control of the indicators and obtains a local time setting based on a time difference between a predetermined standard time and a local time at a target position. The processor makes at least a part of the indicators display the local time in accordance with the operation received by the operation receiving unit and obtains the local time setting based on a difference between the displayed local time and the date and time counted by the timing unit.

  • Patent number: 9579833
    Abstract: There are provided a method and apparatus for forming a three-dimensional image. The method and apparatus form an arbitrary colored image on the surface of a thermally expandable sheet by using surface image data. The method and apparatus form a mirror image, of which the density of a black component is adjusted in consideration of the influence of the density of the colored image on a bulge height of a thermally expandable layer so that an originally scheduled bulge height can be achieved, on the back of the thermally expandable sheet. The method and apparatus can achieve an intended bulge height by expanding the thermally expandable layer with thermal energy that is generated in the mirror image and the colored image when the thermally expandable sheet is irradiated with light including infrared wavelengths from the back of the thermally expandable sheet.
