    Abstract: A mobile terminal includes a sensor information acquisition unit, a state calculation unit, and an output control unit. The sensor information acquisition unit successively acquires bio-information relating to a subject. The sensor information acquisition unit acquires activity information relating to activity of the subject. The state calculation unit estimates a physical condition of the subject based on the bio-information acquired and the activity information acquired. The output control unit controls the output unit to perform a notification of information based on the physical condition of the subject estimated.

  • Publication number: 20170278042
    Abstract: A task management apparatus includes a display controller and a retriever. The display controller displays a check sheet for checking whether a task on a certain date and time has been completed with respect to each predetermined date and time. The check sheet is displayed individually with respect to each type of the task. The retriever retrieves a completion notification that indicates completion of the task. The completion notification includes date and time information on a date and a time of the completion of the task. The check sheet includes a mark pasting area for pasting a predetermined mark with respect to each predetermined date and time. When the retriever retrieves the completion notification, the display controller changes a display manner of the mark pasting area of a date and time corresponding to the completion notification.

  • Publication number: 20170274584
    Abstract: A structure manufacturing method manufactures a structure including an expansion layer M2 by expanding the expansion layer M2 that is included in a print medium M and expands by heating. An electromagnetic wave-heat conversion material is formed on a first surface of the print medium M in density corresponding to a shape of a structure C0 to be manufactured. Here, either the material is formed in lower density than density of the material in a first part of the expansion layer M2 to be expanded to a first height H1 and density of the material in a second part of the expansion layer M2 to be expanded to a second height H2 or the material is not formed, in a boundary region A0 which is the first surface in a boundary part between the first part and the second part. The print medium M is then irradiated with electromagnetic waves.

    Abstract: A first pattern P1 is formed with a first material for converting electromagnetic wave energy into heat energy, on a first surface BS of a print medium M including an expansion layer M2 that expands by heating. A second pattern P2 for expanding the expansion layer M2 to complement expansion of the expansion layer M2 by the first pattern P1 is formed with a second material for converting electromagnetic wave energy into heat energy, on a second surface FS which is an opposite surface of the print medium M to the first surface BS and is closer to the expansion layer M2 than the first surface BS. The first material forming the first pattern P1 is irradiated with electromagnetic waves from the first surface BS. The second material forming the second pattern P2 is irradiated with electromagnetic waves from the second surface FS.
