  • Patent number: 11400607
    Abstract: An image processing device includes an acquirer, a face detector, and a change detector. The acquirer acquires images captured in succession by an image capturer.

  • Publication number: 20220219064
    Abstract: An exercise assisting device includes at least one processor. The processor obtains motion data on a current exercise form of a user performing a certain repetitive exercise motion including a certain motion state. Based on the obtained motion data, the processor determines a point of time at which the motion state occurs in one cycle of the repetitive exercise motion. Based on the obtained motion data and the point of time, the processor obtains the current exercise form in the motion state. The processor obtains a difference between the obtained current exercise form and a target exercise form. The processor causes an actuator to apply a stimulus to a body of the user based on the difference. The actuator is attached to a part of the body of the user constituting the exercise form. The stimulus suggests correction of the exercise form and indicates a direction to move the part.

  • Patent number: 11385600
    Abstract: A timer measurement device includes a signal output unit, an operation input unit and a processor. The processor stores ordered time settings including at least respective timer values. When an elapsed time that is measured by using a clock signal output by the signal output unit reaches a timer value of a time setting selected from the time settings, the processor resets the elapsed time, and switches the selected time setting to a next time setting among the ordered time settings. If the operation input unit receives a predetermined change command during, the measurement of the elapsed time for the timer value of the selected time setting, the processor performs, in response to the change command, a change processing which changes a remaining time with respect to the elapsed time for the timer value of the selected time setting.
