The retaining mechanism changes the sensor mechanism and the user's body between an unpress state and a press state by moving the sensor mechanism at the main body. With the electronic apparatus, a displacement of the sensor mechanism from the body is prevented and the maintenance of a contact condition is secured, an optical measurement becomes possible; therefore, it is thereby possible to improve convenience for a user without adjusting a position, etc.

    Abstract: A receiver sets a storage capacity to be assigned for each connected digital camera based on the number of connected digital cameras, and allocates these storage capacities in a buffer. Also, the receiver sends a request for a through image for each frame to each of the connected digital cameras, receives through images transmitted in response to the requests, and stores the through images in areas of the buffer assigned for each of the digital cameras. Furthermore, after receiving the through image for one frame from each digital camera, the receiver performs image processing on each through image and causes these images to be displayed in a list form on one screen of the display section.

    Abstract: A method of creating a three-dimensionally shaped object, the method having: a creation step for creating image data for printing an image on a thermally expandable sheet; a printing step for printing an image on the thermally expandable sheet on the basis of the image data created in the creation step; and a protuberation step for partially protuberating the thermally expandable sheet via thermal expansion by irradiating light toward the image printed on the thermally expandable sheet in the printing step. The creation step creates image data such that a grayscale of an image is set so that a fastening portion that fastens a thermally expandable sheet is either intermittently or continuously surrounded by a region where a protuberation height resulting from the thermal expansion is high.

  • Patent number: 9901156
    Abstract: A drawing apparatus includes an object mounting portion on which an object is mounted, the object being at least one finger or toe having a nail, and a processor. The processor detects an actual outline, which indicates an actual shape of an outer periphery of the nail, based on an image obtained by imaging the nail of the object mounted on the object mounting portion; creates an interpolation outline with respect to the actual outline other than a root portion of the nail, from the image, wherein the interpolation outline is an outline in which the actual outline is interpolated to eliminate a concavity in cases where the actual outline other than the root portion of the nail has the concavity; and determines whether or not the nail has a damaged portion on the basis of a comparison of the interpolation outline with the actual outline.

  • Patent number: 9900764
    Abstract: In CE4, a communication terminal transmits data including a latency_off value “1”. After receiving the data, an environment information measuring apparatus transmits data since a latency counter value is “0”. The latency counter value becomes “2” and a latency_off counter value becomes “1”. In CE5, the communication terminal transmits data including a latency_off value “0”. Since each of the latency counter value and the latency_off counter value is not “0”, the environment information measuring apparatus does not receive the data from the communication terminal. The latency counter value becomes “1” and the latency_off counter value becomes “0”. In CE6, since the latency_off counter value is “0”, the environment information measuring apparatus receives the data from the communication terminal.

  • Patent number: 9900523
    Abstract: First, the position and the size of a target photographic subject such as the face of a person in an original image acquired by image capturing is acquired, and then mask information indicating a relation between a position to be subjected to predetermined image processing in the original image and the strength of the predetermined image processing is generated based on the acquired position and size. Subsequently, a new image is generated by predetermined image processing of a different strength being performed on each position in the original image by use of the generated mask information. In the generation of the new image, for example, one of the original image and a processed image acquired by the predetermined image processing being performed on the original image is combined with the other image by use of transmissivity indicated by the mask information for each pixel.

    Abstract: A keyboard device includes a plurality of transmission members which are displaced in response to a depression operation on each of a plurality of keys and a plurality of hammer members each of which provides an action load to a depressed key by performing a rotating motion in response to the displacement of a transmission member corresponding to the depressed key. The weight of the transmission member is set in accordance with the formation density of a plurality of ribs formed on a transmission body section. Therefore, the weight of the transmission member set in accordance with the formation density of the ribs can be provided to the key as a static load. As a result of this structure, an initial load on a key can be optimized, and a key depressing force on the key at the time of key depression can be favorably transmitted to the hammer member.
